I have never called myself 'green.' But an article I read recently sure did make me think...

Our Oceans Are Turning Into Plastic . . . Are We?", by Susan Casey. (click article name to read article)
Found in Best American Magazine Writing 2007.

It starts like this... " A vast swath of the Pacific, twice the size of Texas, is full of a plastic stew that is entering the food chain. Scientists say these toxins are causing obesity, infertility...and worse."

Warning. After reading this you may:
1. Forever be considering how many nurdles are in your soup.
2. Be shocked when you realize how many plastic products you use on a regular basis (I was).
