This sure is a shame that all this waste is being thrown in the sea, and ever more- produced! Why can't we all just use refill tanks? Oh yeah.. Were too lazy :)

SMART TIP: Make it a habit to print on both sides or use the back side of old documents for faxes, scrap paper, or drafts. Avoid color printing and print in draft mode whenever feasible.

Waw... this sure dose sound amazing! I mean- I knew we have a whole lot of garbage thrown in to the sea but 8 tons? My god! What will we have left by the time I will be 80? This is very disturbing! I do hope scientists and environmentalists will find the way to deal with this!

You ask, what can we do about it? de Rothschild says we need to keep plastics on land. But this is an almost impossible task considering the amount of single use plastics that are produced every day.

The solution is to reduce our consumption of plastics and find plastic-free alternatives. I have been doing just that for the past 2-1/2 years, and in 2009 my plastic consumption was less than 4% of the U.S. average.

My blog, Fake Plastic Fish (http://fakeplasticfish.com) is a resource for finding ways to live with less plastic.


I am about going green. :) I have heard about Great Pacific Garbage Patch before and I suppose it is one of the ways how to prevent the nature. Great post...

I've known about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch for a few years, but I never noticed people reluctance to show pictures of it. After reading your comment, Kelly, I did a google image search, and I didn't really come up with any shots that really convey the massive amount of garbage that ends up in this accidental landfill (sea fill?). I doubt even an ariel photograph could capture the full 3.5 million tons of trash, but we could do better than showing diagrams of ocean currents, dead animals, and close up shots of floating debris.


Ashame no one will actually show pictures of this because if you do then its real and people have to deal with it
