By the way, plastic bags are not recyclable unless they are completely clean, and for that they have to be separated from the other recyclables. The ones you throw in your blue bin probably will end up incinerated in Mexico.

@bimboteski, yes, it's a newslesspaper plastic bag, one of the bags we are using to build the props for our play (more info below). I was trying to illustrate that one bag going to the ocean is enough to kill one turtle. I believe in personal responsibility and education. But the ocean is in pretty bad shape, and can use all the help we can give it, even if it requires more regulation. It has kept the Earth alive for millions of years. It's our turn to return the favor.
That's why I worked on a play with children from Open Alternative School about the effects of plastic in the ocean. Please come see The Magical Seaweed, showing March 16 and 17, 6pm, at La Cumbre JH Theater. http://www.isaachernandez.com/the-mag...
The good thing about the plastic bag ban is that is getting us to talk about our use of plastic. However, we need more solutions to keep the ocean healthy. Did you know that 70% of the world's oxygen is generated by ocean life? We don't really know what will happen if we throw the ocean out of balance even more. That's why I don't eat wildfish, following on the footsteps of Sylvia Earle.
