I quite agree. I was not aware that somewhere in the North Pacific there is a veritable floating garbage patch that contains millions of tonnes of plastic just sitting there on top of the sea. Where did it come from? Us. We use plastic all around us - just take a look at the supermarket shelves - bottles and bottles of plastic containters - shampoos, hair balsams, shower gels, polish removers, cleansers, plastic bags, plastic jars, plastic shoes.....
It's pollution with a capital P and the only solution is to recycle and use less. Rothschild is planning to spend 100 days at sea on a boat called Plastiki which is a catamaran kept afloat by 12,500 plastic bottles. He wants to raise awareness not only about what ends up in our seas but also about what is dying in our seas - there are less fish in the oceans then there ever were before.
