Back in 2012, we shared Captain Charles Moore’s video on plastic pollution in the ocean. This is an update from his latest travels, things are not yet improving for our oceans:
“Plastics of every description too numerous to count floated past for hundreds of miles without end. We even came upon a floating island that had solid areas you could walk on.”
None the less, it’s an important article, and a valuable reflection piece for spurring students to think more deeply about the seriousness of environmental problems and how to solve them, thinking beyond recycling.
