Spotted: #plasticpollution off the beautiful coastline in Oahu 🌊🏴. ⁣
⁣
Because of the ocean’s currents, plastic pollution often collects on the surface into what’s known as a β€œgarbage patch" though #plasticpollution in general is less like an "island" and more like plastic smog. @5Gyres recently reported a "Global Estimate of Plastic Pollution," finding 5.25 trillion particles weighing in at 270,000 tons of β€œplastic smog” worldwide.⁣
