Quantifying Plastic Junk In The Atlantic Ocean
Large amounts of plastic garbage afloat in the ocean east of BermudaToxic Soup of Plastic Debris, Twice the Size of US
It is twice the size of the continental United States, yet you cannot set foot on it. Scientists have named it "Plastic Soup", and appropriately so. Floating in the Northern Pacific Ocean lays a huge expanse of plastic refuse. This garbage patch is actually two attached areas on either side of Hawaii, known as the Western and Eastern Pacific Garbage Patches.Message in a Bottle
Seabirds are starving with bellies full of trash. Fur seals in New Zealand poop shards of yellow and blue. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is twice the size of Texas. Now the bad news: Plastic never goes away, and scientists are finding that it absorbs toxins with spongelike efficiency. The fix? Cut it off at the source.Toxic: Garbage Island - Part 1Giant garbage patch floating in Pacific
Chris Parry with the California Coastal Commission in San Francisco said the so-called Great Pacific Garbage Patch, has been growing a brisk rate since the 1950s, The San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.

Vegetable matter and minerals have competed with each other to become the dominant industrial input for almost 200 years. For the first 150 years, significant advances occurred in the use of both types of material. Then, for a quarter of a century after World War II, hydrocarbons took over almost completely but since the 1980s, carbohydrate-derived industrial products have been sweeping back as a result of technological and political developments.Welcome to Hemp PlasticStanford, IBM getting closer to 'green' plastic

The basic building block of plastics is cellulose taken from petroleum, but toxic petrochemical compositions are not the only way to derive plastics. Plastics can be derived from plant cellulose, and since hemp is the greatest cellulose producer on Earth (hemp hurds can be 85% cellulose), it only makes sense to make non-toxic, biodegradable plastic from hemp and other organics,Hemp Plastic
googleWhat Is Hemp Plastic?
An affordable bio based natural fibre composite to replace oil based raw materials.
Designed in Europe over 15 years and now produced in China, Hemp Plastics compete with engineering compounds in properties such as stiffness and high heat tolerance (HDT). Both biodegradable and recyclable blends address global policies for CO2 reduction and oil dependence. Hemp plastics are not made from hemp oil or hemp seeds, but from the stalk.Hemp Plastic
Henry Ford was fond of saying, "Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down if we can get the equivalent of forests and mineral products from the annual growth of the fields?"
George Washington Carver had a response: "I believe that the great Creator has put ores and oil on this earth to give us a breathing spell. As we exhaust our finite resources, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which is Gods true storehouse and can never be exhausted. We can learn to synthesize material for every human need from things that grow."
That "breathing spell" ended 60 years ago when Henry Ford built his car. Since then, we have cut down half of the worlds forests, a primary source of clean air. Only 3 percent of the U.S. original forests still remain. Much of Australia's old-growth forests are being cut down for wood chips. If we dont start using hemp to help build our societies, what will we use?Biodegradable Hemp Plastic

Eco-friendly hemp can replace most toxic petro-chemical products. Research is being done to use hemp in manufacturing biodegradable plastic products: plant-based cellophane, recycled plastic mixed with hemp for injection-molded products, and resins made from the oil, to name just a very few examples.Hemp Industries AssociationThe Industrial Hemp NetworkCannabis/Hemp LinksA Peaceful Solution Hemp Biofuel
