Are you trying to fix this problem?

Question submitted by King Philip Regional High School

We are quantifying the extent of the problem along our cruise track.  It’s hard to imagine a fix to get rid of the plastic because it is so widespread.  Our best hope is that you and others help us spread the word to reduce their use of plastic, especially single-use plastics, and recycle them or dispose of them properly so the flow of plastic into our oceans can be slowed.
