Humans hit new low, huge balls of plastic in our oceans.

Humans hit new low, our garbage is being spun by currents into huge balls, come to Bali and swim with the fish and the garbage from continents away. And guess what was the most of the garbage? Single serving containers, seems humans like easy, quick meals.

So do something about it. Stop buying bottled water to start. We ought to be ashamed of ourselves.

So forget about that Bali scuba diving vacation unless you want to swim with plastic. Will we ever learn?
