Plastic trash slowly flooding our ocean harming wildlife.

I wasn't aware of a growing problem of plastic trash flooding our ocean. It's been given a name Great Pacific Garbage Patch, literally an floating island of trash said to be twice the size of Texas and growing.

Here is a video explaining the problem:

I am going to be mindful of what I throw away from now on. I will do my best to recycle or better yet not use plastic items.

:thumbsup:
That sort of individual commitment is important.
Next step, if you feel inclined, is to encourage others to do the same.
