Capt. Charles Moore of the Algalita Marine Research Foundation first discovered the Great Pacific Garbage Patch -- an endless floating waste of plastic trash. Now he's drawing attention to the growing, choking problem of plastic debris in our seas.Uploaded on Feb 25, 2009
On November 18th 2012 a storm hit Dahab in the Sinai. The floodwaters poured down the wadis, dry stream beds and streets, overwhelming the drainage system. as it did so it picked up the waste, mainly plastic, that had been dumped over time. As the waters rose they had nowhere to go but the ocean, carrying their toxic payload as they did so. I only had a small camera with me and the quality is not brilliant, but this short film highlights the problem quite graphically. The biggest issue for me is that if there were better waste management processes and a change in our behaviour this could have been avoided. Published on Dec 6, 2012

Where does your garbage go when you throw it away? Away for the residents of Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington is the Columbia Ridge Landfill in Arlington Oregon. Sustainable Today visited this mammoth site to see how it works and how you can limit the amount of waste that is buried. We also visited the new power plant under construction at the site that will generate electricity from the methane gas pulled from the landfill. Related subjects:
