More And More On The Eastern Garbage Patch

Yes, I know I can not stop.

Plastic is not "biodegradable" it is "photodegradable". When exposed to sunlight, plastic for example, becomes brittle and breaks into miniscule pieces.

 90% of all debris are micro-plastics. Sea-animals eat the micro-plastic. We eat the fish which ate our plastic. There is more plastic than plankton in our open waters.

There is no cure, no remedy, no solution. The only thing you and I can do is stop adding.

Maybe this family who lives behind this fence are the ultimate environmentalists. They hold on to everything.
