Video Of The Week - The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

By Meera Dolasia on February 14, 2010

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a 500-mile long area of toxic plastic waste that extends from California to the Sea of Japan - All created thanks to our careless disposal of plastic, which not only takes a lot of energy to manufacture, but also, hundreds of years to disintegrate.

On this Valentine's day, when we appreciate everyone around us, let us take a moment to appreciate our planet and vow to do everything we can to help out - As you will learn from Kijani, the Green Gorilla, it is quite easy. If we alter just a few of our bad habits, we can make all make a difference!
