One More Reason to Avoid Plastic
For those of you who do not know how much plastic is accumulating in our Ocean, please check out the following story http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090804/us_nm/us_ocean_plastics
Disposable plastic has become such an accepted part of modern living that most people don’t give it a second thought.
For those people who are trying to decide why they should care about tossing a plastic water bottle aside, consider this – the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” is a collection of floating plastic debris about the size of Texas and growing.
One idea to solve this problem would be to redirect Hawaiian bound cruise ship traffic through the Patch for a month or so and see what kind of outcry would result.
Wishful thinking I know, but awareness is the first step in resolving environmental issues.
