Just now I put a 30' by 20' plastic tarp over my boat. It came in plastic packaging. I tied it down with bungie cords from little plastic tubs came in a plastic bag.

Plastic, so awesome, but so forever.

I really hope they get on with developing degradable plastic. We can still use the forever kind for boats and heart valves and stuff, but use the stuff that degrades for packaging and temporary uses.
