Watch the short video Midway, a Plastic Island then answer the following questions in a discussion post.

1. How does plastic end up at remote Midway Island? What are microplastics? How have plastics become a component of the beach sand on Midway Island?

2. How are the threatened Laysan Albatross populations being affected by plastic? What about the Endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal? How does the ingestion of plastic by marine organisms, such as fish, have an impact on human food (think Sushi)?

3. With the recent press on banning plastic straws at restaurants, the bigger problem of single-use plastic waste is evident. List three other suggestions that a college student can do to help reduce the amount of plastic waste in the ocean.

4. Opinion: What do you think is the flip side of the plastic waste argument? For example, do you think people and business owners have the right to use and sell plastics for convenience or do you think that banning plastics is the correct solution to this problem
