Vessel pulls 25,000 pounds of plastic from ocean

During an ‘extraction’ trip from July 12 to Aug 22, Dutch non-profit The Ocean Cleanup removed over 70,000 pounds of garbage from an area known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a swirl of trash in the ocean between California and Hawaii, most of which is plastic. #cnn #news #plastic #plasticintheocean #theoceancleanup #greatpacificgarbagepatch
