Hiya Sasha smiley - hug

I have subbed your entry here: A87948481 please go subscribesmiley - towel

I enjoyed reading the entry, but I was a little mystified at the ending - you say the mystery was solved but not what happened afterwards, were the plastic bits collected up and disposed of appropriately? I was wondering if you wanted to add something about the clean-up operation, or do you want to save that for a discussion when it hits the FP?

smiley - cheers

Hi GB smiley - hug

Thanks so much for subbing this smiley - star

Good question - the mystery of where the telephones were coming from was solved at that point, but the problem of the plastic pollution was not solved at that point... I will investigate - it is many moons since I wrote this, so it is hopeful that something will have been done.

Let's add another paragraph at the end to say:

While the release of more Garfield telephones from the shipping container was able to be prevented, the problem of the pieces already at sea was not so easily solved - Ocean Plastic Tracker continues to record sightings of orange plastic on the beaches of Brittany.

Is that OK?

Two other tweaks that are needed, please:

"a man and his brother" - he and his brother

and I see the Ocean Plastic Tracker link went funny, so it needs changing to http://oceanplastictracker.com please.

Thank you! smiley - starsmiley - hug
