Betty took Larry through the City. It was huge and over-crowded. Everyone was upset that they hadn't been put into a bin and would spend the rest of their lives deteriorating in the ocean. Birds and other marine animals were eating the litter and getting sick or dying. Larry felt sorry for the animals and hoped they wouldn't eat him.
Larry thought a lot about Plastic City. He felt bad knowing that he was causing environmental problems by being there. He sat and wondered how different his life would have been if only Sally had thrown him in the bin instead of leaving him on the bench.
