Repost from @magikknox 📸 . . . Ted Siegler, a Vermont resource economist who has spent more than 25 years working with developing nations on garbage, says : "This isn’t a problem where we don’t know what the solution is. We know how to pick up garbage. Anyone can do it. We know how to dispose of it. We know how to recycle.” It’s a matter of building the necessary institutions and systems, ideally before the ocean turns, irretrievably and for centuries to come, into a thin soup of plastic."
