The plastic island

Roughly between 135 ° and 155 ° W meridian and between 35 ° and 42 ° N is the “Pacific Trash Vortex”, the largest accumulation of waste in marine waters of the earth, located between California and Hawaii, is composed almost entirely of plastic float, so as to assume the guise of a real island!

Being suspended material you can not have the actual size of the island of garbage, but range from a minimum of 700,000 km2 and a maximum ten times greater, twice the size of Germany.
