Re: Garbage Island

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

Re: Garbage Island

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.

Re: Garbage Island

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.
