Ocean Flotsam

It doesn’t even sound like it should refer to something real, does it? But it IS real – very real – and out of sight may be out of mind, but it’s nowhere near Gone.

Ocean Trash Island

When a cargo ship loses a container of Nike shoes, they’ll float around the Pacific for years before landing on the shores of the Pacific Northwest. Plastic bags aren’t quite as boyant though. They’re more likely to make mayhem and kill essential marine life. There’s a literal floating island sitting out there in the middle of the Pacific, with everything from running shoes to entire sections of a ship. Have a look at the chart; click on the link below for details.

  1. I keep reading and hearing about this huge island of Rubbish, is there photo or video proof of this?surely with all the cameras and technology someone can take a photo or video record it and post it online.
    this will stop all the people who do not believe it exists, rather simple really.

    ED: Actually there’s plenty of documentation. Unfortunately, it sits just at the surface, so it doesn’t show up in photographs or satellite images. There are proofs, though — ample proofs.
