That image is sad, frightening, and, maddening...

Gosh, I am totally amazed that it takes that long, a disposable diaper, 450 years?? What does disposable mean then, obviously NOT degradeable....Scary for sure.

Well, I am not saying cruise ships dump these items, I know they don't. But certainly other vessels do; cargo, sailboats, yachts, etc.

Donna,
You are exactly right - disposable just means wasteful, not necessarily good for the environment.
