Finally! Cleaning the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
I have been waiting so long for this to happen! For those of you who don't know what the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is, let me give you a bit of its history.
So, on July 14, 2012, they were able to clean out 50 tons of trash! That is a major improvement to the mission, and I'm glad that they have started cleaning it out. However, there is still more work to be done. Do you believe that the Pacific Garbage Patch will be permanently removed? Feel free to share your comments below!
