One thought on “Chapter III Section M. Ocean Protection”

  1. Love this concept. Would you consider removing the word “all” in this line:
    Support an international agreement for the full cleanup of all plastic waste…

    All is obviously impossible since so much of the plastic has been pummeled into tiny tiny pieces.

    Also, when stating “currently in our oceans” that doesn’t include the plastic that will be dumped in the future. Should the word “currently” be deleted? I understand the reasoning, but not sure it is best to use that term.
