The Plastic Ocean Comes to Manila Harbor

This is almost impossible to believe...but this large mass of grey covering Manila's coastline is garbage.  A crowded sea of plastic garbage is literally drowning out the harbor.

Plastics are not recycled.  They end up in the world's oceans.  Humanity has turned the Pacific into a damned garbage dump.  The instant-gratification throwaway culture is utter madness - "Give me convenience or give me death!"

Want to stomach more?  Look at what happens to the birds who live in these plastic oceans.  This is horrifying beyond words.
