And yet, no photo of the bag or description of it. *Imagine* the PR potential for the company whose name is printed on the bag: "We're Everywhere!"
Yes imagine how much PR they'd get for "our waste is everywere and you can't every escape it" :)

It's mentioned pretty much as an 'aside' in the article but plastic waste and "micro-plastic waste" are currently the hot topics for ocean research for a good reason.

That's why I put the plastic bag first. 'Littering the parts other litter cannot reach' - a historical achievement.

I wonder if the bag is from a (at least relatively) recent wreck somewhere nearby?
