  1. 3 things I learned from this video are:

    1. Life Magazine helped introduce ‘throw aways’- products that could be disposed of.(For example: Disposable Diapers)
    2. Plastic is NOT purified by remelting.
    3. In the United States, people use 2 million plastic beverage bottles every 5 minutes.

    2 things that I think would make a difference to this problem:

    1. Try and make a material that could substitute for plastic that can be recycled easily.
    2. Make landfills,so the used plastic can go there instead of the ocean.

    1 question I would like to ask Mr.Moore:

    * “Do other people support you in working towards trash-free oceans?”

  2. 3 things I learned from this video:

    1. That only humans make things that nature can’t recycle.
    2. In U.S.A. 2 million plastic bottles are thrown away every 5 seconds.
    3.That nearly all of the trash thrown away are plastic bottles.

    2 suggestions:

    1. Instead of buying water in plastic bottles we could use refillable bottles to drink water.
    2. We could find uses for trash instead of throwing it away. Once some guy actually built an artificial island out of water bottles.
