What is the best way to stop plastic polluting the oceans?

Throwaway single use plastic such as plastic bottles and plastic bags is accumulating in vast amounts in 'gyres' in the oceans and does not biodegrade but breaks into smaller and smaller pieces. The most famous gyre is called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and is said to be twice the size of Texas. Plastic is killing millions of sea animals and birds that swallow it and getting into the food chain that goes on up to us. Plastic absorbs toxins so we are getting these poisons in our diets too.
