    First documented in the 1950’s, the Pacific’s garbage patch is believed to be the world’s largest garbage dump.  Some reports estimate accumulation of garbage as twice the size of Texas and still growing.  The North Pacific Gyre is approximately10 million square miles of clockwise ocean pattern in which all other ocean currents feed into.  Plastic is found at depths of 30 meters or around 90 feet.  Scientist say we will never be able to rid the Pacific Gyre of plastic.  What must happen is to stop adding to the dump by using less plastic.
