As an artisan, I goes through range to catch symmetry in the crazy preparations of mashed vehicles or in the structure of thousands of Barbie toys items, to switch the way I look at the life periods and detritus of huge consumerism.

Hi Harold,

Thanks so much for your note. Yes, it is incredible how little the public is aware of the trash patch. Currently there are groups trying to make better visualizations of it so we can rapidly educate the world. Currently two new expeditions are going heading to the patch right now to understand it better - David de Rothschild's Plastiki expedition is particularly compelling http://www.theplastiki.com. The Plastiki is a boat made entirely of 100 percent recyclable plastics. David's boat and project is inspired by Thor Heyerdahl's famous Kon Tiki expedition from Peru to Polynesia in 1947 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ (Bucky was inspired by it too in his NAGA studies). Plastiki and other projects will bring this challenge closer to the surface so we can collectively amplify our global efforts to address it. ~Bonnie


What an amazing post, Bonnie!! Thank you, I had read about the 'Pacific Garbage Patch' earlier this year. If I am not mistaken, vbs.tv did a great video-journalist piece on it, where a group of people documented their voyage by boat to 'The Patch'. I was amazed at not only its size but also how nobody, in the general public, is aware of its existence.

I look forward to reading so much more, thank you for taking the time to be so thorough in this blog, it is greatly appreciated.
