I would love to see billboards right next to supermarkets with a message about 1.where plastics finally end(oceans) and the killing the visit there 2. Websites to visit for directions on dealing with plastics and even how to monitize plastics. 3.

I would be awesome if all who have contributed to this challenge developed into movement and clean up the globe.
