Within this sphere are items I collected from a beach on the island of St. Croix, mixed with Caribbean ocean water from the site of the where I gathered the trash. The yellowing you see is from 10 months of fermentation inside a sealed bottle, where as the bottle that held pure ocean water never changed in color or smell.

I always try to pack out garbage that I find on my hikes but the high tide brought in a ton of beach garbage. #loveyourparks #plasticpollution #pacificgarbagepatch #cleanupyourshit #nondisposablelife

I had the awesome pleasure of meeting Capt. Charles Moore today! 🌀 I did a presentation on his discovery my first year of college :) I'm so excited to check out his lab! He's sporting a recycled plastic hat & necklace. How awesome is that?! 👊🌍♻️ #pacificgarbagepatch #pollutionsucks #reduceplasticusage

I have longed to see Margaret and Christine Wertheim's crocheted coral reef project, having followed its global impact and also having worked with Margaret many years ago. I finally saw it today and it was more awe-inspiring, beautiful -- and also disturbing -- than I could have imagined. #coralreef #pacificgarbagepatch #craftism #crochet #museumofartsanddesign

There are 5 gyres, or circular currents, in the oceans that are created by Earth's rotation and wind. The currents attract much of the waste floating in the water. The North Pacific Gyre, AKA the Pacific Garbage Patch, is located in the Pacific Ocean. As its name suggests, it has become a huge floating island of garbage, twice the size of Texas.

@theoceancleanup begins here!! A ping ping ball dropped in this creek would bob hundreds of miles to the Pacific Ocean. There it would begin its thousands of miles journey to the #pacificgarbagepatch. The flap of a butterfly's wings can create a hurricane. Be the storm of change you wish to see in the world by flapping your wings. #leavenotrace #packitout #cleantheoceanhere #cleanoceans #vagabondcowboy #thepowerofnow #hikingwithdogs #streamsbecomerivers #s⬆️2c #kickcancersass #theroadnottaken #stealtimeback #mettabhavana

Woot woot finally. 🙌🏼 The EPA should be helping with this. Why is it up to a Dutch organization to clean it up? Oh wait that's right we won't even have an EPA after December 2018 if Trump & his republican minions have their way. Yes that's right, don't believe me, look it up. 😶🙃#greatpacificgarbagepatch #pacificgarbagepatch #oceans #littering #trash #garbage #oceancleanup #debris #politics #dutch #environment #environmentalism #environmentalist #epa

My alarm is set to watch War On Waste on the ABC tonight at 8.30pm.
yOUR waste is growing at double the rate our our population with 52 mega tonnes generated each year.

We are the problem and the solution.

Will you be watching it also?

Every morning we do a round trip walk to the beach at the end of my road. Every morning I pick up one bag of trash and plastic. I cannot fathom having a drink from a can or bottle and then tossing it on the ground and walking away! ? It's overwhelming the amount of garbage that is on our beaches. I have to prioritize my trash pick up - larger pieces at or below the high tide line - so they don't get washed back in and become smaller pieces. On a side note, does anyone know who hauls away large fishing nets. You can't see all of it, but at the right of this picture is a mound of tangled fishing nets and buoys the size of a Volkswagen. @surfwriter @raftography who do you call to get nets removed? #trash #plastic #beachcleanup #cleanocean #surfrider #oahu #hawaii #coastalcleanup #keepyourbeachesclean #overwhelming #rubbish #garbage #pacificgarbagepatch

Flashback to our previous exhibition Maasparadox: @foekjefleur's Bottle Vases. After reading about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch she inspected nearby Meuse riverbanks and collected detergent bottles and used these as moulds and colour inspiration for these porcelain bottles #bureaueuropa #maasparadox #foekjefleur #maastricht #sphinxkwartier #euregion #euregio #maas #meuse #rethinkplastic #rethinkplasticcobsumption #pacificgarbagepatch #plasticsoup #exhibition #tentoonstelling #porcelain #porcelainbottle #johannesschwartz #flasbackfriday #detergentbottles photo: Johannes Schwartz
