Shocking video of plastic rubbish island!

Check out this shocking video about the growing mass of plastic rubbish in the Pacific!

These are some quotes from the video:

“The area that is polluted is estimated as double the size of Texas. It’s a whole region of the ocean that is just totally infested with just little broken up bits of plastic.”

“The problem with plastic is that it doesn’t biodegrade, it photodegrades. A process by which it is broken down by sunlight into smaller pieces. But they still remain as plastics.”

“80% of plastic in the ocean comes from land and river run off. The majority of that is simply household and municipal waste. The problem is growing at an alarming rate.”
