Who is responsible for the cleanup of the great pacific garbage patch?

    So far the patch is being studied by a few different groups to assess the dimensions and cleanup possibilities. One of them is Project Kaisei whose goal is to study it as well as run a commercial recycling business. The project is run by the Ocean Voyages institute with funding from UC Ship Funds and National Science Foundation, as well as partnered with the California Department of Toxic Substances Control. So it looks like cleanup will be done by environmental and recycling organizations, which aren’t the responsible parties for creating the patch. Perhaps with more awareness of the magnitude of the problem, large scale government (of Pacific coast countries) cleanup or at least funding could enter into play.
