One person’s trash is…..still trash

Researchers are now beginning to dissect the trash of the great garbage patch. Here are a couple of articles and a recent interview on the topic.

The articles are “Great Pacifice Garbage Patch is Worse Than We Thought” by Ariel Schwartz at  Inhabitat and “A Trip to the Garbage Patch” by Rachel Ehrenberg at Science News.  

The interview is “Marcus Eriksen Describes Ocean Gyre of Plastic Garbage” by Beth Lebwohl at EarthSky.

Finally, I came across this article just the other day and thought what a great way to follow up on all the studies happening with the great garbage patch. Check out “Tagged-Trash Study Shows Where it Goes” by Phuong Le from the Associated Press via the San Francisco Chronicle.
