thetyee.ca...




Located in the Pacific Ocean between California and Hawaii and measuring in at roughly twice the size of Texas, this elusive mass is home to hundreds of species of marine life and is constantly expanding. It has tripled in size since the middle of the 1990s and could grow tenfold in the next decade.As suggested by the name, the island is almost entirely comprises human-made trash. It currently weighs approximately 3.5 million tons with a concentration of 3.34 million pieces of garbage per square kilometer, 80 per cent of which is plastic.

I had no idea that such a thing exists...

Thank you for providing this information, although I found it most disturbing.

The human race seems determined to destroy everything, including ourselves, due to our reliance on plastics and other such products.
