Place a hefty environmental tax on every plastic bag used in commerce

When the United Nations came forward with a study in regard to this issue, they reported that each square mile of the ocean has roughly forty-six thousand "pieces" of floating plastic in it. This same study also states that at least ten percent of all plastic produced annually around the world finds its way into the ocean and to reiterate, seventy percent of that plastic will fall to the ocean floor, where it will more than likely never degrade. All of these plastics are noxious to ocean life, and in specific, consider the devastation these degrading chemicals are causing our coral reefs, the cradle of all life on Earth, which can not survive in an acidic environment. When coral reefs are gone, humanity will follow.
