Yesterday we read an article about plastic afloat in the ocean.  In particular, we found out about a huge gyre of plastic, twice the size of Texas, that has formed in the Pacific Ocean, close to Hawaii.

You can read more details about the gyre and other interesting Current Events that we have been collecting for our Sustainability News Google Map.
