Since the ocean is always moving, because of the tides, wind, sun, earths rotation etc.
The plastic can be piled up, in a gyre- a gyre is a whirlpool created by Earths rotation and the global wind pattern.
There are Gyres that are found in all the five major ocean, North Pacific, South Pacific Gyre, The North Atlantic And South Atlantic gyres and then the Indian Ocean Gyre.
At the center of these gyres, you get this massive piles of plastic ( they can speed up to years in the gyres until a storm comes to place them away or water variation)
Any of these can end up in the Gulf Stream which is along the east coast of North America.
Then it travels all the way to the Arctic.
There has been recent study, that The Arctic has mejor garbage ( plastic).
I think that we can help the earth by starting to recycle, and not throwing it around.
I don’t know why people throw plastic anywhere, Whenever I see garbage I just pick it up; even if it isn’t mine.
It’s just weird to see garbage lying around. I just don’t get what they litter; they have the same amount of energy used by throwing it in the recycling bin or garbage can ; or like other people do- throw it anywhere they would like.
