Here Be Garbage – And Here Be How To Banish It
Help clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch & win a Trip to Hawaii
Know what's even scarier than water-dragons, krakens, and whatever the #$@$ that thing is in the bottom right corner? The truly mythical amount of trash in our oceans.
Dirt on Gyres
- Gyres are massive systems of rotating ocean currents (think slow-moving whirlpools) that pull ocean debris into one location—including litter, fishing gear, and other garbage.
- There are five main gyres in the ocean: one in the Indian Ocean, two in the Atlantic Ocean, and two in the Pacific Ocean.
- The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) covers an estimated surface area of 1.6 million square kilometers—an area twice the size of Texas or three times the size of France.
- 80,000 tons of plastic float in the GPGP—that's 500 jumbo jets
Garbage (Patch) Disposal
Ocean Voyages Institute has been a leader in ocean cleanup since 1979. In 2020, they broke the record for the largest single mid-ocean cleanup, hauling over 340,000 lbs.
In 2021, they're aiming to shatter this record by removing one million pounds of plastics and ghost nets from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
