Garbage Patch in the Ocean: Bigger Than Texas

I thought the garbage patch in the ocean was a joke.  I started digging into this more and found out it’s real and we are the ones to blame.  I know that you wouldn’t purposely drive to the ocean and throw your plastic water bottle in, but are you throwing it away in the garbage?  Two key steps to help.  First, recycle as much of your trash as you can.  Second, reusable products like grocery bags can save on using so many plastic bags.  Instead of buying plastic water bottles, get a reusable one that can reduce your plastic bottle consumption. You can do a lot by doing a little.
