The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Did you know that there is something called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch floating in the ocean between Hawaii and California twice the size of Texas?

With this petition, we are trying to make a difference.
Marine life is mistaking plastic and garbage for food and slowly many different species are getting affected in many ways.
We can make a difference, by signing this, our voice will be heard.
Make a difference in your community, cleaning up trash on your local beach for an hour can make a HUGE difference. If you won't clean up a beach, at least purchase a stainless steel or aluminum reusable water bottle. Make sure not to pollute your local beaches and always recycle! Help us make a difference!
