2011 is the year to Get BioSmart!

Now is the time to lessen the impact of Styrofoam on our oceans and landfills.

I want to salute Anthony Russo, Sustainability Expert for bringing out elegant designs that we can each take to local vendors who still use styrofoam.

There are various designs for almost every use.

Check out this lovely featured product here on the new BioSmart website. it’s an elegant 32 oz Square Salad / Pasta Bowl http://www.biosmartpackaging.com/Default.aspx?cl=About

WHAT IS THE GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH GYRE?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Pacific_Garbage_Patch

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also described as the Pacific Trash Vortex, is a gyre of marine litter in the central North Pacific Ocean located roughly between 135° to 155°W and 35° to 42°N.[1] The patch extends over a very wide area, with estimates ranging from an area the size of the state of Texas to one larger than the continental United States; however, the exact size is unknown.[2] This can be attributed to the fact that there is no specific standard for determining the boundary between the “normal” and “elevated” levels of pollutants and what constitutes being part of the patch. The size is determined by a higher-than normal degree of concentration of pelagic debris in the water. Recent data collected from Pacific albatross populations suggest there may be two distinct zones of concentrated debris in the Pacific.[3]

EFFECTS OF STUFF IN THE OCEAN ON WILDLIFE

Some of these long-lasting plastics end up in the stomachs of marine birds and animals, and their young,[7] including sea turtles, and the Black-footed Albatross.[25] Besides the particles’ danger to wildlife, the floating debris can absorb organic pollutants from seawater, including PCBs, DDT, and PAHs.[26] Aside from toxic effects,[27] when ingested, some of these are mistaken by the endocrine system as estradiol, causing hormone disruption in the affected animal.[25] These toxin-containing plastic pieces are also eaten by jellyfish, which are then eaten by larger fish. Many of these fish are then consumed by humans, resulting in their ingestion of toxic chemicals.[28] Marine plastics also facilitate the spread of invasive species that attach to floating plastic in one region and drift long distances to colonize other ecosystems.[17]
Research has shown that this plastic marine debris affects at least 267 species worldwide and a few of the 267 species reside in the North Pacific Gyre.[29]
