[edit]Apols / title should read "PLASTIC BEACHES".

I was watching the last in the Tropic of Cancer series on TV last night and was shocked by the scale of the problem of plastic waste washing up on Kamilo beach in Hawaii. I recollect similar problems being identified on a recent Mr Cousteau the Younger series.

What surprised me the most, and which I don't recollect having been explained previously, was the depth to which the ground up plastic reached ............ up to a foot thick or more!

Mind you, once the plastic has reached the size of a grain of sand, is that really a problem to anyone/thing anymore?
