These take forever to degrade - like almost never. What if we had enclosed areas on the ocean where they are floating on the water - in a net so that ocean life and birds can't eat them, but they reflect back the heat that the ocean normally absorbs. We could put these on land as well. As long as they are contained by a net, they will help reduce climate change. Even a little helps when everyone's ideas are adopted.
Right now - most trashcan sized liners and leaf bags are black. They should be white so they reflect the sun's heat back off the planet. I'm thinking of hundreds of thousands of these bags at the dumpsites - all black and all absorbing heat into the earth because black absorbs more heat. If they were all white, they would contribute a little to the reduction of global warming.
