I welcome you to sit back and enjoy Resa’s words of heartfelt passion regarding one of the hardships we have placed upon the Earth and her inhabitants.
Thank you, thank you! I can never thank you enough.
This is not fake appreciation, even though I, myself, am plastic.
You have made sure I am special, so very special.
I used to be buried away, nothing but old dinosaur bones, but now, just look at me! I’m everywhere!
I’m in landfills, where I help retard other more organic garbage from finding its way back to whence it can be helpful, again.
I’m inside the fish you eat, but don’t worry, I’m very filling!
Many other animals eat me. I’m so popular.
I wrap almost everything on earth, and sometimes, if I’m made right, I can be remade to rewrap.
Oh, but why bother? You have an endless supply of me. Mother Earth has provided well, in this regard.
Have you seen the sizes of the ocean dumps you’ve helped me create?
I mean, keep this up, and eventually you will be able to walk from San Francisco to Honolulu on me. Ah, we work so well together.
Well, just wanted to stop by and say, “I can never thank you enough.”

I, Carolyn, found and added this magnificent video one day after posting Resa’s Guest Post. It certainly brightened my spirits. If you are at all interested in this huge problem, viewing the following video will, I’m sure, brighten your spirits enormously.
The ‘Ocean Cleanup’ launched this fantastic operation during September 2018.
