Imagine you are relaxing at your preferate California beach. You watch the open ocean trying to spot sea animals, dolphins or whales… All of a sudden you believe you see one. But actually it is just a huge mountain of trash: The “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.”

Yes this floating mess is now indeed visible off the California coast and according to scientists already impacting on the ecosystem negatively. Almost as bad as this river?

By now, the enormous floating landfill is growing in the ocean between Hawaii and California. It has been discovered in 1997 and monitored since then.

Captain Charles Moore and his team of scientists from the Algalita Marine Research Institute believe it is responsible for enlarged and discolored livers found in fish around this floating garbage.

To decrease this Great Pacific Garbage Patch, we should actually ban plastic bags. But are we ready now?
