    Plastics made from biodegradable substances (corn oil) would be the better solution on a going ahead basis.

    Regarding the existing problems, just collect from the worse concentrations and learn to life with the rest. It's inert. It's ugly but that's about it. Bulldogs are ugly until you learn to change your perception of ugly.

    launch it into the sun

    seriously ?
    the debate is twisted
    the material should be shredded then mixed and melted together to make things like
    park furniture and kids playgrounds

    but people cant exploit profit from such a process so no one is interested
    its all about the profit margin

    The real problem is throwing plastic in the ocean. Put it in the garbage can and let it end up in the city dump and there is no problem. It's inert. It serves as a stable base for land field material.

    Allocate tax money from profits generated from plastic to collect plastic that ends up where it shouldn't be.

    It's not a flaw of capitalism. It's a problem that capitalism can handle as well as any other economy system.
