‘Love is in the air, but the air is highly polluted’, Amit Abraham. So is the Sea!

My social commentary for today is the Pacific Trash Vortex

This is just one of 5 large vortices created across earth’s oceans by revolving currents that trap garbage into these large areas.

I don’t want to show you the nasty pictures especially if you’ve kept track of this, but Google, trash vortices, trash in the oceans – you’ll get there. It’s an ominous problem and one that continues to grow without bounds it seems. In following Gandhi, there are many who act to make a change:

Smithsonian’s Ocean Portal on Sea Trash

Greenpeace.org Campaign on Ocean Trash

10-most-common-types-of-ocean-trash – Care2.com

Well, I was going to post my own two-line ditty about this – but it’s somewhat tasteless so instead, I’ll point you to (in my humble opinion) the best site for quotes about trash……
