Majestic Plastic? Or Waste That Won’t Die…


We’ve written about the Pacific Garbage Patch before. This huge mass (twice the size of Texas!) of discarded plastic shows that when it comes to throwing away plastic, there simply is no Away.  All those forgotten plastic toys, cups, bottles, lighters and other plastic waste that never biodegrades goes to live on forever in this plastic mass floating in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

This video takes a step back and shows how one discarded bag makes its way to join the other plastic junk in the ocean.  Check out this hilarious mockumentary by Heal the Bay, and see the story of the “Majestic Plastic Bag”:
