David Cuellar Pens "Plastic Island"

David Cuellar Pens PLASTIC ISLAND San Jose, Calif.

A 2001 study found an average of 334,271 pieces of plastic per square mile in the northern Pacific Ocean. The middle of the Pacific Ocean holds a stationary garbage heap about twice the size of Texas that goes unnoticed. Author David Cuellar is trying to change that.

In his short children's story, "Plastic Island," Cuellar stresses the importance of keeping the environment clean. Pollution affects all living beings, from a boy who plays the flute to an eagle that flies in the sky. Cuellar believes that Mother Nature has done her part, so it's time for mankind to do his.

While on a hiking trip in Middletown, California, Cuellar first learned of garbage patches in the ocean from a fellow hiker.

"My first reaction was disbelief," Cuellar said, "But after researching it, I realized the truth. I saw the vortex in the ocean as the Earth doing its part to gather up our mess."

Everyone can contribute to the beautification of the earth. Kids, teens, adults, CEO's and even members of the United Nations have a part.

Cueller hopes to spread awareness of the garbage patches in the ocean and to help raise more environmentally conscious kids.
