Have you seen the Great Pacific garbage patch?

The Great Pacific garbage patch, also called the Pacific trash vortex, is a gyre of marine debris particles in the central North Pacific Ocean.

The patch is characterized by exceptionally high relative concentrations of pelagic plastics, chemical sludge and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre.

Research has shown that this plastic marine debris affects at least 267 species worldwide. Some of these long-lasting plastics end up in the stomachs of marine animals, and their young, including sea turtles and the black-footed albatross.

There are a few possible solutions of resolving this problem and one of them is to create floating Ocean scrapers, made from the plastic found in the Great Pacific garbage patch.

We decided to write about this patch today, because even if the carpet of garbage in the ocean is interesting for the eyes, it isn’t that much interesting for the nature and spices living in it. With representing this problem to people we hope that we’ll push them to take more considerable actions towards nature in the future.
