1. The size of foul field of Trash is 2 times the size of Texas.
2. It is said 1/5th of junk trapped in the “garbage patch” comes from ship dumping
and the rest of the trash comes from human land trash.
3. Environmental researchers believe 90% of the trash in the ocean dump is from
plastic, which is not bio-degradable.
4. Some environmentalists say there is 3.5 million tons of waste swirling in the
Pacific vortex near the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
5. Thousands of birds and sea-life creatures are dying from eating plastic particles
in this huge debris field, because they can not digest the plastic and it
dehydrates them or stops their digestive system from functioning.
6. Some of the tiny plastic bits pass into the living systems of marine life and travel up the food chain until it lands on your dinner plate or in your fish sandwich! And, yikes…. Gulp…. you have eaten residual plastic! Perhaps a piece of your plastic grocery bag, water bottle, used condom or plastic chips bag ends up in your stomach.
