THE GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH

We all can notice the devastating effects of our lifestyle on nature.

One of these effects is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch: a giant island of plastic and rubbish that is transported and accumulated by the ocean currents in the Pacific Ocean. It is three times the size of France. And it is just one of the five giant patches floating in the oceans. Plastic is eaten by marine wildlife and sea surface feeders remain tangled in old discarded nets and this is a problem for the human’s food chain too.

Some associations are trying to clean it up, but the road is still too long.

We can all be part of the changing with everyday decisions. We need to clean it up, but most importantly to prevent the presence of plastic in oceans.
