Plastic Soup

Plastic Soup shows the scope of the damage from the world using the ocean as a dump and presents solutions.

A vast amount of plastic waste -- twice the size of the United States -- is floating in the Pacific Ocean. Welcome to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch: the Plastic Soup.

Plastic is an incredible material we can't do without, but it also creates the biggest pollution problem imaginable. This is something Jesse Goossens discovers during her travels and conversations across the United States and Europe. Her blogs and interviews are shocking, fascinating and dismaying. In this full-color book, she uncovers the effects of plastic waste on our health and on the environment not only in the Pacific Ocean, but everywhere on earth.


For her book, Plastic Soup, Jesse traveled to the United States and several European countries to interview people who are involved with the issue of plastic waste; from Captain Moore -- the discoverer of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch -- to recyclers, from representatives of the plastic industry to delegates of environmental organizations, and from the Dutch Secretary for Environment to the director of UNEP New York. During her travels Jesse kept a blog www.plasticsoup.org), entries of which are in Plastic Soup.
