Video: Efforts to Clean Up The Great Pacific Garbage Patch Now Underway

We’ve all heard tales about the massive Great Pacific Garbage Patch and how it continues to take over the ocean. Now, an ambitious effort is underway to begin cleaning up this massive floating island of plastic and other debris, with an organization called The Ocean Clean Up launching a high-tech approach to collecting and removing all of that trash. This past weekend, a ship set out for the GPGP in an effort to begin this long and difficult process. Find out more about those efforts in the video clip below.
