Plastic Soup

What does this look like to you? Does this look like the kind of blue water you expect to find in the middle of the ocean? Do you think water should look cloudy like this? If you look carefully, you can see small bits of plastic suspended in the water. And, you can see a cloud of sediment--tiny bits of plastic that make this water look like plastic soup! Gross, right?

Boo on Balloons!
