They may be in a landfill today and away from the ocean but that may not be true tomorrow. Also a lot of florida sits under the water table so any seepage will make its way into lakes and the ocean
Seepage now? Talk about moving the goalpost.

After decades of environmentalism enforced in this country since 1980 especially, suddenly we are polluting our oceans?
You do realize that China and India are the ones polluting the oceans right? It's not us.

As you said, WE have landfills. We put our waste into controlled locations or we recycle. For over 30 years that has been taught and enforced throughout the country. Banning straws, plastic lids or plastic bags is not going to solve anything especially when Disney sells a ton of plastic based products or products wrapped in plastic.

Plastic waste will always be there.

This news is definitely upsetting to hear, especially with the overuse of plastics that we already see in our society! In my opinion, if someone needs to keep their devices dry for the ride, they should be responsible for bringing their own ziplock bags (and recycling stations should still be made available at the end of the ride). My hope is that Disney can come up with a way to manage the use and recycling of the bags... just imagine the mess the plastic will make, or how many animals could wind up eating the bags!
Upsetting? That seems a little dramatic. I certainly think it’s hysterical that the straw/lid/bag initiative was timed for release at the same time as the ziploc announcement. Poor coordination of messaging.
