We visit the Great Pacific garbage Patch to show you what is there. Our purpose is to raise awareness of this environmental calamity and help researchers.

According to an article published today in WorldCrunch, plastic pollution has contaminated our oceans to the point where scientists have now termed the waste as the “Plastisphere.”  Plastic inherently contains toxins.  Plastic pollution in the ocean acts like a sponge, collecting all kinds of different bacterium, and according to scientists, that includes bacteria of the genus Vibrio, the bacterium responsible for cholera.  Bacteria colonizing on plastic pollution in the ocean are “as antibiotic-resistant as the toughest bacteria present in urban environments.”
