Did you know?

Ocean 'Gyres' are networks of currents that move around the planet circulating water.

An ocean Gyre is formed from a web of currents influenced by wind and the rotation of earth.

The result is a slow-moving whirlpool system of water covering huge patches of ocean and capable of accumulating an immeasurable amount of rubbish.

Debris gets caught in the cycle and flows towards the centre of the spinning Gyre.

There are 5 major oceanic 'Gyres' in the world collecting decades of garbage from every corner of the globe.

Ocean Gyres may be far out at sea, but they are exposing the harsh realities of ocean pollution; and world pollution.

Please be aware of your consumption of disposable plastics and materials that will never degrade from our planet. The ocean cannot carry the weight of our waste forever.
