To The Unaware

To put it succinctly; there is an island out there on the Pacific somewhere between California and Hawaii. It is not an island to take a vacation on, nor one to honeymoon.
It is a floating island of garbage consisting mainly of plastic and it is known as Garbage Island.

The currents of the Pacific at this point come to a gyre and trap the garbage accumulated in their journey making an island that is about two times the size of Texas.
The island is not easy to clean since ecosystems have adapted, have flourished and have become part of the ocean food chain. Professionals are now trying to fix this mess.
Sadly enough, Garbage Island is not the only island of this type floating in the oceans.

In this crowded world we need to conserve, recycle and not litter in respect to the unborn, human or not, who will eventually have to deal with our ignorance in order to survive.
Plenty of web sites address the problem of Garbage Island. Please investigate.
