    Have seen this before, but not done as well as it seems to be, apparently there are two huge garbage patches of floating plastic in the pacific, one near Hawaii and one off of China... both equal the size the the US.. without regard have to wonder for the long term implications for fishing and wildlife in general.. guess the answere to polution is not dilution..
