Great Pacific Garbage Patch

By: Brock Beeler

What is it?

The great pacific garbage patch is where garbage like plastic has collected in the ocean from people littering and not recycling or getting rid of thing right.

How can we get rid of it in Iowa?

In Iowa we could help it by picking up plastic and trash that we see on the ground. If you see a bottle cap on the ground you should pick it up and not leave it there. If everyone helps then we could lessen the amount of plastic going to the ocean.
