I created this petition to bring awareness to the largest landfill on Earth, which is floating in the Pacific Ocean! It's grown so large, and is a big hazard to marine wildlife, the environment and even us.
As the currents flow in a spiral, pollution mainly consiting of plastics are drawn in and stay there for a long time. Plastic releases harmful chemicals into the air and water and as the plastic is in sunlight, it breaks into smaller molecules and are injested by marine life.
Often, fish and birds will choke to death on this plastic. The few mammals that remain in these areas and larger animals such as tortoises become entangled in netting and fishing lines and may die.
As the animals consume these plastics, if enters the food chain and over time gets into our system. Down the road, there may be severe harm from this.
We need to take a stand and start to clean this up. Cleaning it is just step one of the solution!
