Trash Tip
Trash Tip In a 12-week test, the Ocean Cleanup removed more than 63,000 pounds of trash, including a refrigerator, toilet seats, toothbrushes, VHS tapes, golf balls, shoes and fishing gear, from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is twice the size of Texas. Every day around 8 million pieces of plastic make their way into the oceans and 88% of the sea’s surface is polluted by plastic waste.
