Beat the Plastic Bead
We did an infographic a few months ago about the harmful effects of plastic in the ocean. Turns out the stuff is more ubiquitous and more harmful than we thought. Not that that's a reason to get too serious. Here's a short video introducing a little-known kind of plastic pollution that's fun to watch, featuring Captain Charles Moore, who found the great Pacific garbage patch in 1997 when he sailed through it on the way home after participating in the Transpac sailing race. Enjoy!
