How does all the trash end up in one place in the ocean?

    Strong currents create large gyres in the ocean. Gyres are giant sections of circular spinning water and collect trash in its whirl pool, continuing to accumulate more and more and grow into large floating trash islands. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is the most well known, is estimated around the size of Texas and continuing to grow from largely plastic trash.
