Recycling is cool and all, but man, this video really made me want some halibut.

That was pretty neat, but the guy drilling in his lap on a swaying boat made me nervous. And now I want some halibut too.

Love this. Done by Studio Swine. They've got plenty of other great work.

In that it reminds me vaguely of Gaetano Pesce, I do like the thing that gets made here. But gosh, is this video remarkably twee and self-congratulatory.

Why Is 99% Of The Ocean's Plastic Missing?
Millions of tons of plastic that should be floating around in the world's oceans are unaccounted for — and some of this plastic may end up on your plate.

Researchers (reporting in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) believe the answer lies in microplastics: pieces of plastic that measure less than five millimeters across. As debris drifts on the ocean, solar radiation and waves break it down into these millimeter-sized fragments, which researchers believe are being eaten by marine animals.

When marine animals eat the microplastics, they’re ingesting these toxins along with them — toxins that may then move up the food chain and into your fish tacos.
