  1. The garbage patch can’t be cleaned up because it’s not exactly a floating island of garbage. What happens is the plastic that winds up there breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces until it’s at the molecular level. A lot of the damage to sealife comes from when the plastic breaks down into small enough peices that it can be ingested, though the individual polymer bits are also toxic from what I hear. But yeah, it’s not so simple as to just go with a boat and haul the garbage out, you can’t really comb zillions of small plastic pieces out of an ocean.

I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Each girls and boys feel the affect of just a moment’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
