I think what angers me aside from the incredible damage to the river and ocean ecosystems (google marine debris)  this stuff is doing, is that these products come from oil and are designed for the landfill or incinerator.  The value of polymers today  is very high. The producers should be held responsible and be required to take back their  products and packages.  The question of growing food in PE is a distraction to the wasting of this material due to the irresponsibility of the manufacturers for bad design and government for subsidizing  their disposal.
Happy Independence.
