Ban non biodegradable plastics, non recyclable plastics, and BPA

The plastics are ending up in our oceans and the only way it can be stopped is if we stop producing the plastics and the chemical BPA. It cannot be cleaned up. The terrible state the ocean is in can be seen in this documentary of the "garbage island" when in fact it is not a mass floating around, it's little bits and pieces killing fish and in turn killing the ocean. Please, let's instate a worldwide change to phase out plastics that do not biodegrade in a certain number of years in moist conditions made from plant based material and plastics that are not recyclable at all(yes they do exist). You have to change the source, you can't control consumers tossing things into the ocean apparently.

Letter to
EPA
Ban non biodegradable plastics, non recyclable plastics, and the chemical BPA from production. Tell all plastic manufacturing companies that they must replace them with plant based biodegradable materials within the next five years.
