The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

The North Pacific Garbage Patch is a giant island of trash located in the Pacific ocean between California and Japan. The Garbage Patch is twice the size of Texas and weighs 3.5 million tons. It’s the planet’s largest landfill. It is made up of garbage such as plastic bags, plastic bottles, etc. 80% of the debris within the Garbage Patch comes from land and the other 20% comes from cargo ships.
