What are the ways in which we can improve this major problem?

Landon Conner's curator insight, December 3, 2015 10:05 AM

The trash vortex is a major issue on our planet. Not only to the animals getting caught and dying in this trash but for the people that make this trash. If trash like this continues to grow, pollution will increase more and more! Our society needs to to abide by the 3 R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). And by this, we can get our planet back into the right shape! LDC
