TED + VICE: What’s The Great Pacific Garbage Patch? A floating trash Island the size of Texas

We recently celebrated the incredible work of Bureo and Carver Skateboards for their innovative and epic new board called the Ahi. Each board is made from 50 square feet of upcycled fishing nets collected from our oceans, much of which accumulates at the centers of our ocean’s gyres.

Ever heard of the Texas sized island of trash that’s suffocating the Pacific Ocean?

While the Pacific Garbage Patch may be the most well known of the garbage islands, make no mistake, every ocean on Earth has one. Just take a few moments and do some research; what you’ll find will blow you away.
