It was a sad day when I learnt of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the destruction caused by plastic debris in our oceans (See photos by Chris Jordan http://www.chrisjordan.com/gallery/midway/#CF000313%2018x24 )

What are harder to see and report on are the microscopic particles of degraded plastics, which also cause damage to wildlife. I think Chris Jordan's touching pictures should be used in recycling and sustainable living adverts, as they are hard to ignore.
