You can keep trying, but the genie is out of the bottle now.  You don't get to beat Mother Nature.  She's going to fix this shiat.
Now remember all the rude, invasive things you've done to her. She's coming for you, baby.

What if we gave the microbes some cursed Frogurt?

So much for your Mediterranean Diet plan.
Although it is high fiber (micro).

'Bad' bacteria is a nonsense statement. Every human is covered in staph and has e. Coli in their gut yet those can both be very dangerous.

The Frogurt also contains bacteria.

The Frogurt also contains bacteria.


And, as we already know, the yogurts start with Ohio. They will claim their own place in the stars, eventually.

There are already microbes that exist by consuming petroleum.  How long until some of these evolve a taste for these plastics?  Should be great because it will solve this problem, but I'm imagine there will be a whole new set of issues to deal with.

/we should consume less plastic and recycle more of what we do consume.
