The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Digging into the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

We have been reading about Carbon Footprints and ways that we can have a more positive impact on our environment.  
This message about how we manage (or in reality, do not manage) our disposal of plastic rubbish is very concerning.

Comment:  What is your largest concern about the amount of plastic wast in the Pacific Ocean?  What can be done to fix this problem?


  1. Lily - I am worried that the plastic is killing animals in the ocean and birds on the atoll.

    1. Isn't it terrible to think where all of this rubbish ends up when it gets thrown away in an irresponsible way. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, Lily.

  2. Nevaeh: I am horrified by the amount of plastic that has been floating
    in the sea. It makes me sad to see the destruction of the environment and the
    wild life. We must stop littering world wide and start recycling it in a useful way.

  3. Oh wow I did not know people were poluting the area. Poor people and sea creatures! Genavieve 😕😢

  4. Devina:it's really sad that
    the rubbish is poluting
    the area and the sea creatures
    are dieing or getting sick.
