Plastics in the oceans is a problem that is killing numerous amounts of marine life, it is eaten by many animals and also fed to their young. After watching midway 'a message from the gyre' (link below @ vimeo) myself and the doc were inspired to pass this message on to our friends in the best way we could 'Music'.
MYTH: There is a giant island of solid garbage floating in the Pacific.
FACT: There are millions of small and microscopic pieces of plastic, about .4 pieces per cubic meter, floating over a roughly 5000 square km area of the Pacific. This amount has increased significantly over the past 40 years.
We would also like to mention the words 'pacific garbage patch and twice the size of texas' are mostley regarded as a myth, it has only been used in the track for artistic purposes as this is what is quoted in many videos. most of the plastic in the ocean is small. There is so much information that could be written here, but i feel the links below explain the facts better, there are so many sites that are dedicated to fighting plastic pollution, that l can only name but a few, the following ones inspired us to make this track, please visit them all and give your support in whatever way you can:
