In the South Pacific Ocean researchers have mapped a plastic patch bigger than Greenland. Researchers think that the patch is roughly 2.5 million square kilometres wide. Much of the waste seems to have come from New Zealand which is shocking. To solve this we need to cut down on the plastic we use or not use any at all. Think before you buy and think before you throw away.
Thankyou to Mrs Webb for suggesting this.
