    Why should we all carry plastic bags, when dog owners should pick up what their dogs leave behind?

    In that hypothetical case, I would take a hypothetical plastic bag with me.

    My mate will produce enough poop for all of us if we feed him the pies.

    As a seasoned sailor (Engineer 2nd Class), I have spent many hours staring at the great oceans of this amazing planet and as time has passed, I've noticed more plastic rubbish, scum and less wood floating on the waves. Keep a few plastic bags in your back pocket, so when you shop, you can say "No thanks. I'm trying to save the world". When we call into port, we often have to employ specialists (divers) who have to untangle junk from our props, mostly plastic. Imagine what this junk is doing to the wild-life ! Fish consume small pieces of plastic, so your favorite fish dinner might be giving you back that bag you threw away last year.

    One of the other aspects of plastic pollution it seems are the Mini micro teeny weeny plastic beads put into soaps and creams etc which are used to scrub your skin clean

    Any reason can't use sand? Just grind it down a little bit more
