    Strange how humans use an article that never degrades for applications with a very short useful timespan.

    The real frightening thing is the refuse islands created that are up to 90 km in size

    We should start a suggestion to revert back to paper bags not plastic!

    Our own coast lines, when all the rivers in flood, tons of plastic bags wash down our own rivers into the ocean. People wash their clothes, bath all wash down to the coast. Quest what no can stop it. Puddle hop, snorkeling long peaces of materiel every where, its stuck on to sps. The damage thats been done, quest what no one can stop it. Not only a whale death, our entire oceans been destroy by mankind. Destroying reef and wipe out our fishes as well. There is a way for all this to stop.

    when i do my shopping i ask the person that is helping the cashier to put as many things as possible in one bag... i dont really care if some deodorant is in the mix with the bread and other things... if most people could do similar things perhaps things will improve... as for using paper bags here in Africa i personally think we are couple of years away. i dont see this system getting implemented around the third world countries any time soon unfortunately

    Guys I am appealing for the Cape Town guys to attend the protest on the 5 Febuary. The Durban guys on the 2 Febuary. The more people that attend, the bigger the voice.

    If you are in favour of saving our oceans contents, against the culling of sharks and want to put a stop to the culling. Then here is an opertunity to have your vote. The world must see what Australia is doing to our sharks and ultimately reefs around the world.

    This is my appeal through MASA and dose not imply MASA's stance on the issue. I respect all members rights and opinions on the issue.
