I created a topic so that we can rate the greatest environmental threats. For me, garbage in the ocean, specifically plastic, is greatly endangering our ecosystem. Our oceans take up roughly 70% of the world's surface ... and they are polluted. I would love to see a project get started to clean up the great garbage swirl. Currently little particles of plastic are spreading all around our oceans and killing our marine life. The sad fact is that this plastic will be there for hundreds of years.

So what do you think? Join the conversation.
