Where does all the trash go?

Despite popular belief trash does not just miraculously disappear once thrown out of a moving car or discarded onto the ground.

Though it may seem impossible – trash travels.  It finds its way into our waterways and pollutes our oceans.  Due to ocean currents, that trash you discarded on the ground out of convenience that found its way into our oceans, is pulled into a giant trash island/patch.  The most publicized ocean trash island is located in the Pacific Ocean and known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.  This particular garbage patch is 2x the size of Texas.

Think about that when you decide to litter …
