Project Kaisei – Plastics in the Ocean

Imagine every person on earth had 100 pounds of plastic. That’s how much new plastic will be manufactured in 2010. Sadly, much of that will end up in the ocean within a massive area dubbed the Pacific Garbage Patch. Can anything be done to clean it up? Project Kaisei, a non-profit group based in the Bay Area is studying the scale of the damage and its impacts on the environment. Originally produced for KQED’s QUEST series. (8:30 min)
