A Mission Statement

We have a very big problem on our hands.

This problem affects every human being on this planet, rich or poor, while damaging the earth's ability to support our existence... This problem has been going on for the last hundred years, and has only intensified recently as the global economic paradigm of never-ending growth has increased resource throughput virtually everywhere in society.

This problem is the mass dumping of toxic and non-biodegradable plastics from worn-out goods and over-packaged consumables in many areas across the globe, though typically forced into poorer regions to keep it out of the sight and smell of our plutocrats.
