In this article, we will discuss Great Pacific Garbage Patch. So, let’s get started.
Great Pacific Garbage Patch
- The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also known as the Pacific Trash Vortex, spans waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan. It is a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean.
- Marine debris is litter that ends up in oceans, seas, and other large bodies of water.
- GPGP is almost entirely made up of tiny bits of plastic, called microplastics which are non-biodegradable and harmful for marine life and human beings as well.
