We all know it by now.
We all have heard about the plastic soup, but for some it is quite an abstract phenomenon.
For us it is very confronting to be faced with the (mostly plastic) mess that we humans have entered the ocean each time we go out to sea.
Everyday we pick up plastic while we are out there.
It is not only on the surface that we encounter it, like this tern using a discarded flipflop as a resting platform.
