This storyboard does not have a description.
The Great Pacific Garbage patch is in the world. Its is made up of 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage. There are many different pieces of garbage the most popular piece of garbage are cigarettes.
80% of the trash comes from the shores than goes into the Garbage Patch. But 20% of it is from ships. Then it goes into the ocean and makes it way into a garbage patch or into an animals mouth.
We can prevent trash going unto water ways to keep . Another way we can help is to recycle plastic items instead of just throwing them in the trash .
The Great Pacific Patch collects trash because of how it moves. The currents move in a clockwise way so then it pulls the garbage with it. Then the garage keeps build up into one patch.
People litter and then the trash goes into a water way which brings it into the ocean. Then it could possabily hurt an animal or kill them or have an animal think its food then it eats it.
When you are on a boat don't litter because it will be going straight into the ocean. So instead you should throw away in a trash can instead of messing up our environment
