How to remove a million pounds of plastic from the ocean and waterways?

United by Blue commits to removing a pound of trash for every item purchased from their company. Somehow that claim makes me feel as if I’m being held ransom to their products, but at least it’s having good effects. They don’t just donate to groups doing the work; they organize it. They have both brick-and-mortar and e-commerce sales.
