Plastic litter in the oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues in our time, and the ocean is being filled with garbage at an extreme rate. The oceans surrounding Sweden is unfortunately no exception. Ocean currents accumulate litter from around the world that then converges in specific areas, forming giant garbage islands. The largest of these islands is located in the North Pacific, called The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The garbage patch is estimated to be up to 1.6 million square kilometers, equivalent to just over three times the surface of Sweden. If nothing is done, we will have more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050.
