Missouri River Plastic Gyre "The Trash Trap"

Published on Apr 7, 2014 by Missouri River Relief

This weekend, the group that I work with joined the 24th Annual Project Blue River Rescue in Kansas City. Our site was on the Missouri River downstream of where the Blue River joins it, a place we call the "Trash Trap" at mile 350.9.  This is truly the "Plastic Soup" you can only imagine when you hear about it.  The same stuff that is filling our oceans, only now its in every stream, tributary & river that feeds into the ocean. 

You're not gonna believe it until you see it.   Please....pick up trash before it gets into our rivers and streams. It's so much easier there.
