As human beings continue to consume more and more products, the waste produced by these products also increases. Unwanted bottles and packaging from land as well as buoys and netting from boats is finding its way to the sea. These items float on the surface of the water and drift at the mercy of the ocean’s currents. Gyres, which are circular surface currents, gather the trash from offshore and spin it into a massive rotating vortex of pollution in the middle of the world’s oceans.
