Where do plastic bottles go when they die?

Artists for A Pristine PlanetEver asked yourself where do plastic bottles go?

Sadly, most of the our discarded plastic products (bottles, bags, etc) end up in Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

It takes a 2 liter Coke bottle approximately 2 weeks to travel from San Francisco to the Pacific Gyre.

By the time it reaches its destination it will be a “photodegradable” mess. Instead of biodegrading, the sun will weaken the plastic, making it very brittle.

It breaks down into tiny pieces of plastic; and this is the reason why some institutions feel it is impossible to ever clean the Garbage Patch up.
