I just received my first Boom Boom! deck and decided to pick one I thought seemed managable (at 11pm). I googled "trash gyre" and of course got thousands of results each more shocking than the last. As a surfer, I know that garbage in the ocean is a huge problem and a threat to wildlife but I had no idea about the way plastic breaks down and remains floating in the water. I decided my most effective approach is to share my discovery through my social network by selecting a short but detailed video to post on facebook and google+. I hope that my friends and family will spend a minute to watch and learn and I will commit to buying Christmas gifts which incorporate recycled materials to reduce my impact on the trash gyre. Boom Boom! (After just 10 minutes I have one 'like' - all it takes is one person at a time)
