I do read the articles, but then when I hit the comments section I start thinking about what the members are saying too. Sometimes things stray...

half of plastic bottles are thrown away instead of recycled.
around 20% of the plastic bottles in oceans comes from ships and the other 80 from waste disposal, most from Japan and U.S.
A solution would be this http://www.gizmag.com/360-paper-water-bottle/11927/ but if there are no laws for this the industry will give not a single shit and only go for profit.
