I saw a television documentary about the plastic in our oceans, about a year ago.
It was shocking.
I knew that there is plastic garbage floating around screwing things up for the wildlife but had no idea what a massive amount of it there is.
And no idea it is killing as much wildlife as it is.
Clearly, things need to change, as with so many other fukkered up things we are doing to our environment.
I like this clean up idea and will send them some Paypal dough. :thumb:

While there at it, there needs to be enforcement of these Frickin Cruise ships dumpin crap/Sewage literally into the Water along with any Vessel that has an Outhouse on It!

Yea there's plastic and a lot of other Bullwash that gets dumped.

I saw a stat on TV about 4 months ago that blew my mind. The show said that for every square mile of ocean there are more than 3,000 pieces of plastic. Crazy talk!
