Have you ever heard of the plastic island??!!

I never did until today. There is an island of plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean that is twice the size of Texas. It floats around and the plastic is degrading, polluting the ocean with toxic waste. If the ocean does become more toxic, we may not be able to clean it up!
