Plastic eating bacteria sounds like it would lead to new problems that would require new and expensive solutions.

I don't think that scenario is in any way realistic: It's unlikely we'll be able to produce an organism more capable of eating everything than what billions of years of evolution has already achieved.

Plus, if it were possible, the universe would be full of it: We're very likely not the oldest technologically advanced race.

Worst case scenario the enzymes start eating people due to all the plastic we ingest.

Best case scenario we discover a way to use these enzymes in our own bodies, letting them eat up plastics we've ingested and thusly keeping us safe from any dangers that come with ingesting small amounts of plastic on a regular basis.
