    Recycling plastic would be the best way to eliminate plastic waste. Funny you asked this question they say that God created us because the earth could not produce plastic. Not too funny, but the sad reality is that plastic is crap. Literally it is the waste byproduct of oil processing, nasty stuff.

    On the topic of God if you are aware of what is going on in America it would appear that God has a fix for the plastic problem. They say Yellowstone is a super volcano and it is so threatening to the world. Yellowstone is just a small part of the ring of fire which appears to right now as I write this ancient dormant volcanoes are waking up.

    A chain of volcanoes from Canada through America and Yellowstone all the way down through Mexico and out to sea. Thousands of volcanoes, tens of thousands. So in theory magma would eliminate the waste a new crust will wipe out any proof we were ever here. That would do the trick as to the best way to get rid of plastic.

    I really can't see plastic bag production being eliminated.  Some people prefer plastic over paper-at one time it was said to save the trees but now most of the paper bags are recycled.  For some people plastic bags are easier to carry and some people don't like the handles.  But people can do several things to slow down production.  They can reuse bags by saving them and taking them back to the store.   Many grocery stores take back plastic bags if you get have too many saved up.  People can also use the canvas shopping bags when they go shopping.  As a matter of fact many stores encourage using these.

    I think the best solution is to make a biodegradable alternative. I vaguely remember an article from a while back where they were testing out plastic cups made from a material like shellfish. Not sure what ever became of it. But it seems that the best solution is to replace plastic bags, rather than eliminate them. Just because they've become so ingrained.

      I remember there was some type of chip bad that was supposed to be biodegradable.

    Plastic bags aren't bad per se.
    Recycling them is certainly an option, and I worked several years for a company that did. In fact, they recycled the bags in recycle bins in front of grocery stores and turned them into landfill liners and trash bags.
