...pick up your trash...
#1
GREED:   well lets start a push on cleaning up the planet starting with the Oceans. A few will start gathering ocean plastic and junk, and when a few people see the profit in that line of work, they will be on it like gangbusters literally making a fortune in payments from the recycle plants or perhaps from the governments, Costing a Whole Lot LESS than just plain government action clean-up.

Just daydreaming......
Heck, the oceans might be all cleaned up in five years.

there are a few that have already seen the profit from recycled plastic. here on dry land many trash companies charge you for the can and to haul off the recyclables.
on top of that, they want you to do some of the work involved in the process, like washing and sorting the recyclables.

then they turn around and sell the plastic to foreign countries who don't really recycle it all, just some of it that is a certain kind and then they either leave the rest in dumps or burn it. and the recyclables that are not clean enough to be sold wind up going to the landfills anyway here in the states.

china use to be the the top country, last i heard and read they don't do that any more. now i think it's Thailand and Vietnam.

as you said it's all about greed and money but nothing has changed, just gets moved around.

here's a vice report,

You Only Think You're Recycling These Plastics

there have been a couple reports on this 

here is one about thailand,
Thailand to permanently ban plastic imports by 2021

there is one show, i think it was Full Measure With Sharyl Attkisson( not sure about this being the one) that went to Thailand and showed the mountains of plastic trash.

the only real way to take care of the problem is to go back to the old ways and use glass, cans, and paper bags, or better yet all fresh food. 
hell when i was young my grandparents and parents saved all their butter containers they ever bought for left overs.

I still do. Those plastic coffee "cans" make good planters, too.

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

-Aldous Huxley

i save the new plastic coffee cans and use for painting, screws, nuts and bolts, all kinds of stuff. they work real well. almost as good as the metal ones did.
