Visit an isolated uninhabited Pacific Island and find ... trash

Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team sail into the Great Pacific Garbage Patch while shooting Voyage to Kure. The garbage patch moves in a giant clockwise motion picking up the worlds trash and depositing it on beautiful deserted islands.

Thats the problem :)
All this rubbish has floated there from other places, dropped off ships, thrown in the water, washed down rivers. It then floats to the middle of the ocean in a giant slow motion whirlpool and ends up on these islands.

Charles Moore estimates that 80% of the garbage comes from land-based sources, and 20% from ships at sea.

Moore states that currents carry debris from the east coast of Asia to the center of the gyre in about five years, and debris from the west coast of North America in a year or less.

Its the one in the middle called the "North Pacific Gyre".
