I think we need to applaud effort in the right direction, so this is good news. However, I suspect it is just a media snippit which may not tell the whole story. The plastic bag which breaks down in the ocean breaks down to the components of that plastic bag, and we do not know what effect those materials will have on the environment and on the food chain.

For example, Fukushima radiation although it might be 'diluted' in seawater is ALWAYS there existing for hundreds of thousands of years in the mud at the bottom of the sea. That mud with radiation particles in it gets eaten by worms and works its way up the food chain to fish which humans eat. One radoiactive particle canlodge in our body and cause a site for cancer, mutation or disease.
