I keep hearing about Garbage Island and wondered more and more about it. About a month ago I finally saw some stirring pictures of this morass of plastic. It spans twice the area of Texas and is decompossing into a goo. Besides the obvious fact that garbage island is a ecological nightmare the clean-up of this mess will take a global effort. It needs to be addressed now. When plastics break down to their lowest form they play havok on reproductive systems. Plastics are cancerous. Our plastics industry is an affont to the health and harmony of this planet and we've been fooled into thinkink of plastic as a neccesary and benign product. It is everywhere and it really should be either eliminated or converted into plant based plastics.
