It is a nice lovely day and you really want to go to the beach and you really want to go for a swim today. You get to the beach and you see that the water is FILLED with plastic! You know that people are working on cleaning the ocean but they haven't gotten to our beach. You get mad and impatient and you wish that you can fix this.
You actually can fix it! All you have to do is try to help promote the people or businesses that are already getting plastic out of the ocean. One business that is really good called the ocean cleanup (link in bibliography) is trying really hard. You can make a blog or website where it promotes them, you can then buy their recycled plastic so that they get more money to get more plastic out of the ocean.
The ocean cleanup puts nets where currents are so that the garbage patches just float right into the nets. A boat comes and empties the net once it is full. They also have a solution to stop garbage from even getting into the ocean. A robot boat called the "interceptor" stops the garbage from leaving rivers, and "intercepts" it which stops it from even getting into the ocean. Once the boat gets full another boat comes in and takes out the garbage and then makes the plastic into something else and then sells it it (by the way the ocean cleanup is a non profit business.) This is also an example for how you can promote businesses like the ocean cleanup.
#Water2Me, What does water mean to me? Water means clean water to drink and able to eat because all of the animals use water and we eat them. I also love a bunch of water sports and if there is no useable water then I can't swim or any of that.
