Time to stop making plastic

THE EDITOR: It was reported in Thailand that 80 plastic bags were found in the stomach of a whale which had died because it was unable to eat due to the plastic obstruction.

This is only the tip of the problem as many other water creatures are certainly being killed from eating plastic. The effect on man is not yet fully known, but since humans also absorb plastic via the food chain, sooner rather than later man too will become its victim.

I believe the manufacture of plastic should cease all together. There is enough discarded plastic throughout the world that could be recycled and reused for hundred of years without the need to continue making this product.
