Through the Gyre

I have another link for you. This is a “good” one – GOOD has information and interesting articles on every topic you could want. It’s a surfers dream.

This is what they say about themselves:

” GOOD is a collaboration of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits pushing the world forward. Since 2006 we’ve been making a magazine, videos, and events for people who give a damn. This website is an ongoing exploration of what GOOD is and what it can be. “

Okay, let’s talk about the graphic above.

There’s a large blog of plastic floating in the North Pacific Gyre where the currents can trap garbage for years. In fact, there are five huge patches of plastic floating in the oceans of the world. They are made up of billions of tiny pieces of plastic. Humans use 200 billion pounds of plastic every year and a significant amount of it ends up in the ocean and it never biodegrades. It will forever remain plastic – however small its pieces becomes. It breaks down into tiny particles and is consumed by aquatic organisms and enters the food chain. Read the entire article – Through the Gyre – but don’t stop there. Surf around GOOD and check out some of their articles on lifestyle, environment, business, politics, etc. Go ahead. Feed your brain some good stuff.
