    What is the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch? | The term "garbage patch" most often refers to a nebulous, floating junk yard on the high seas. Two of the most famous are the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the more-recently discovered Great Atlantic Garbage Patch. It's the poster child for a worldwide problem: plastic that begins in human hands yet ends up in the ocean, often inside animals' stomachs or around their necks. | MNN - Mother Nature Network

    What is the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch? A swirling sea of plastic bags, bottles and other debris in the North Pacific that is about the size of Texas. And now another one has been found in the Atlantic. Together, they cover a larger area than North America.
