Cool video.. Watched it the other night and yesterday I went to the store and got non-disposable sandwich containers instead of ziplock bags.

I have been through the gyre three times. This year was the worst, part was tsunami debris.

And it's not just the one in the Pacific..... that's just the biggest one, I believe most if not all of the major oceans have one.

Like they said.. no one is innocent.. all we can do now is make sure we do our very best to avoid using more plastics.. and recycle what we do use.

Re: Garbage Island
Yeah, unfortunately cases of bottled water are to convenient for people, especially sailors with it's easy stow-ability. I wish more people would buy bigger jugs and use smaller reusable containers to drink out of.
