Go Green and Recycle

This world is starting to turn into a giant garbage can for our own waste. A bunch of the air in the world is all polluted and soon if we don’t watch how much pollution is going out into the air there will very little fresh air to breath. You probably won't believe me when I say this but, within the area of California and Japan and Canada and Hawaii there is an enormous area in the water that is full of all the plastic that we throw into the water. As we do this all the sea creatures will start to die from either getting killed by eating the plastic or getting there mouth shut and dying from starvation. On the website Google images there is a picture of a turtle with a piece of plastic wrapped around its stomach. Because of that the turtle has a giant piece of plastic that is wrapped around its shell, Also there is a picture of a dead composed bird with a bunch of plastic in its stomach. This area is called the trash vortex, the reason is because there is a current that is going in a circle between Canada, Japan, Hawaii, and California. The current keeps all the trash in that area and that is how they got it to be called the trash vortex. The trash vortex is enormous, it’s size is twice the size of Texas on one side and getting bigger. If we can recycle then we can help keep the vortex down and have a cleaner and safer planet.
