THE GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH
Did you know that there is a giant patch of junk that is currently floating in the Pacific Ocean? I didn't either until my friend Doug told me about it. Apparently, it stretches from the coast of California to almost Japan and is TWICE THE SIZE OF TEXAS! Reaching almost 90 feet deep in parts, it is made mostly of plastic, and its becoming a real problem for the animals that live there. Hmmm.... lets see small fish eats plastic, big fish eat small fish, human eat big fish. Yep, another reason not to eat fish. I'm also recycling now. Always!In addition, I'm breaking down and buying those take home bags at Kroger. It may not be much, but I'm going to try and do my part.This is getting out of control! Don't believe me? Listen to Oprah. She starts up at about the 2:28 mark of this video.
