L’isola che non c’è. La plastica negli oceani fra mito e realtà

Everyone knows about plastic islands, but they are not on the maps. Everyone has a different idea about them, and there is a mystery: if it’s true that every second 300 kg of plastic debris ends in the ocean, why can’t we see them floating on the surface? Where does the garbage go? What is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? When was it discovered? How can we clean all this up?

This plastic soup is everywhere, and often it ends in our dinner. All you need to know and to understand in order to prevent this kind of pollution is in the book, which is very clear and full of informations.
