The Great Pacific Garbage Patch February 18, 2013

Filed under: Air Purifying,Recycling,Wildlife — Mary @ 1:56 am

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a patch in the pacific ocean that is filled with garbage. All the things we don’t recycle, but don’t have anywhere to go, were just thrown into the ocean. Apparently, the ocean would “swallow” it up, and nothing bad would come of it. This isn’t true.
By this mistake, we have killed hundreds of fish, ruined beautiful sea life and habitats, and poisoned water that we may need one dat. We have killed birds, and the ozone. Most of all, we have scarred this beautiful earth we call home. Please try to stop using garbage so that our home can stay a happy, healthy place to live in. If you do have plastic, check to see what kind it is before throwing it away, in case you can recycle it!

    It really is.
    What I’m thinking is, what if we collected a ton of that stuff and sent it to companies that make recycled products? (Or could start?) That would get rid of a lot and keep it from being put in a landfill.

    TerraCycle is a company that upcycles trash products into new things like bags and backpacks. I would love to take some of this stuff show above and donate it to them.
