The world's largest thrash dump

The world's largest thrash dump is not a dump yard of any metropolitan. it resides thousands of Miles away from the land - in the Pacific.

As per the wikipedia :
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also described as the Eastern Garbage Patch is an area of marine debris in the central North Pacific Ocean located roughly in an area between 135° to 155°W and 35° to 42°N. The patch is characterised by exceptionally high concentrations of suspended plastic and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre.

The dump is largely composed of non-biodegradable plastic.The plastic which breaks down into small pieces is finding its way into wild life.The size of the dump has almost been doubled in the past 5 years.
