There are some amazing facts about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch:
. It is twice the size of Texas
. It weighs 7 million tons
. It is nine feet deep
. 80% of the rubbish is from land
Another thing which scientists have found about the garbage patch, is that 9% of marine fish are found with plastic in them. In other words, almost 1 out of every 10 fish have plastic in them.
