It's hard to fathom the mentality of people who toss away their garbage so thoughtlessly. I understand there are some fjords in southern Chile where it's impossible to reach land due to the massive pile-up of plastic debris along the shores. I suppose at some point floating recycling factories will 'mine' these areas for their plastic 'wealth', but for the moment, it confounds us with the message of our lack of caring for our planet.
