    I love this but you have to educate to people to stop littering. Maybe even fine them until they get it.

    My current view on the subject, from the first Interceptor thread, why not just join the threads?

    Promote a diet free of ink and cardboard. Better for locals, better for health, better for environment.

    An absolute waste of time, funds and energy.

    Until people are educated and plastic is banned, it's a lost cause. We lived without plastic and styrofoam before, and it can be done again. But I don't think that will ever happen in the DR. They're going to let the island become a complete dump, beyond repair. Only when tourism drops to nothing because of the garbage, will they get it. But then it's too late.

    Now that was a start to a very cherry morning. One opinion only type guy and if y'all don't follow my opinion it will be the end of the world.Throw the technology in the basura as well. LOL

    May your heart be filled with hope not despair.

    The garbage problem in the DR didn't start yesterday. Do you see an end in sight? Do you see any education taking place with kids? And do you actually think this silly machine is going to make the island pretty?

    No despair here. If it gets much worse, I'll just be gone. Which is what a lot of people will do.
