  1. How many "littering" citations are issued to the certain demographic(s) of people who just routinely walk or drive around and toss their trash on the ground? If you struggle identifying that demographic…..take a quick drive through the neighborhoods that are littered and covered with trash everywhere. That might be a good start. That plastic and trash in Buffalo Bayou didn't just "magically appear" there. It's not like it washed up from the Tsunami event that involved Fukushma Reactors in Japan. But I guess that "litter enforcement" angle is "too challenging" and "too harsh" and "too insensitive" to report on ……so instead ABC Network News and the environmentalists much prefer to do "the patented "pat themselves on the back" feel good puff pieces" while simultaneously guilt tripping EVERYBODY EXCEPT the exact group(s) of people actually doing the MOST littering. The precise same demographic(s) in the American social fabric who are likely ALREADY struggling mightily with the most basic tenets involved with personal responsibility and the concept of "pitching & fitting in" to a civilized, clean, AND safe society.

  2. We humans are so stupid buying plastic containers. What did we expect.

  3. 🛑 producing plastics.

  4. Ooohh…my Gosh..
    I thoght this huge problem of plastic garbage only in Southeast Asia.., in America as well..

  5. There is more than goes in the waist stream than we can ever clear up. Stop using it. It’s the only way.

  6. Well i am all for that. Cleaner water means good quality marine life and fish. Keep in mind we are human and we do need clean and good quality water. Not to mention whats in the water is a major part of our food supply. Great job ABC News now this is both positive and encouraging!

  7. what about the 30 million gallons of sewage that just got dumped into Pacific Ocean?

  8. Stupid & ineffectual reporting, typical for Ginger Tard…🙄

    Manchin: "I haven't done anything that isn't for my state or my country". That includes polluting the state and country for personal profit.

    Trump: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive".

  10. India calls it holy water not dirty water

  11. Todavia hay tiempo Busquemos la manera de tomar agua sin la botella de plástico. Todos juntos UNIDO’s podemos

  12. Non profits putting in work the GOVERNMENT get paid to do

  13. This is our home so let's make it a better place that we all can enjoy🙏

  14. If you clean up the water you can go swimming in more places, how is that not bad..? Also why are people even doing that we got drones that will do the pickup, all people have to do is empty them..

  15. sorry, its too late to repair the generations you broke

  16. the government gives me a limit on how much weed I can smoke each month but cant give these companies a monthly plastic limit ……Jeeeezz

  17. I appreciate his help but this is like MrBeast's #teamocean. It's a bandage to a shotgun blast. This problem is so much complex and it doesn't end with recycling. Our society had remove all responsibilities of taking care of our planet from corporations. They are the one who made these products in the first place. And yes, we keep buying it. Ppl are not gonna steer away from what is convenient for them. And the rise of food delivery service just make it worst of the consumption of single use plastic. There is hope tho. There are grocery stores in Canada than only sell products without plastic. All of the packaging is made by corn starch or biodegradable material. I'm not saying these packaging don't have its flaws, if dispose off incorrectly they could produce methane gases. But that proves that corporations can make their packaging more earth friendly but they choose not to.

  19. Folks will worry and talk about cleaning up some far away place but the river, streams and creeks in your city are filled with trash. Great to see some in the community doing a great job.
