There is a patch of floating garbage in the North Pacific.
It is twice the size of Texas.
It is so large, it has been dubbed the 6th Continent.
It is not a pretty sight and it is killing the ocean.
One of the major causes is people drinking water from plastic bottles.
In the US alone, 173 589 041 plastic bottles are dumped in the oceans every day.
Yest, you read it right, over 173 million plastic bottles, every day.
Please, stop drinking from disposable plastic bottles and switch to reusable bottles.
It will save you money and give the oceans a chance.
I know some of you will think: We all know this, this is old stuff. Come on man, we're in 2011.
I know, I know.
Yet, everyday, I see decent, educated, wealthy professionals using plastic bottles and I'm wondering at how disconnected from reality they can be.
If you already know how bad drinking water from plastic bottles is, go and tell all your friends. I bet some of them haven't heard the Gospel yet.
