Our world is FILLED with plastic. It’s hard to even imagine a day where you wouldn’t use plastic in many different ways. We looked at the plastic we use and then looked at the impact of our use of plastic by watching part of the movie Addicted to Plastic. We were surprised to learn about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the North Pacific Gyre. This movie showed us that 80% of the garbage in the ocean is land-based. It also showed us that there is 10 times more plastic than plankton in the water. We thought about ways that we can reduce our plastic use.
