Discussion Board Topic 3: Where does our trash end up?

For this discussion board topic, I want you to consider where your trash ends up if it is not properly disposed.

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) is a floating island of trash found within two large portions of the Pacific Ocean.  There are also floating islands of trash in ALL of our oceans.  Watch these videos regarding this environmental disaster (all clips are short).

Discuss your concerns over this environmental issue with the class and respond to two other student posts.  How will it impact the ocean’s food web?  Should you be concerned, or is it not in your backyard?  What could be done to remediate (fix) the problem?
