Recognize The Great Pacific Garbage Patch as the 8th continent and stop ignoring this environmental disaster!

    1. Petition by

      SodaStream

For decades, billions of plastic bottles manufactured by Big Soda companies have reached the Ocean and been gathered along with other plastic waste to create a huge mass in the middle of the Pacific. This mass, also known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, is so big – twice the size of Texas - that it should be its own continent.
This human creation must be recognized by the international community.

The Secret Continent is real!

‘The Secret Continent’ is an imaginary resort destination that we created in an effort to bring attention to the environmental devastation that is taking place in the Pacific. The damage to our planet is shocking; this garbage patch is made from just a portion of the 10 million tons of plastic pollution humans create each year.  To date, scientists have documented the impact of marine plastic pollution on 663 different marine species, including all known species of sea turtles, half of all species of marine mammals, and one-fifth of all species of seabirds.  

Help us raise awareness and convince the world's leaders to declare The Secret Continent an official continent; it is big enough, after all!

We urge you to discuss the secret continent's political and geographical status, and declare it as a new formal continent so it will no longer be ignored. Only with a move this bold will people begin to notice what is really happening to our environment, and take actions to make change.

      This is absolutely disgusting. Think of the impact on marine life. Man is a truly selfish creature
