Japanese Tsunami Debris Washes Ashore in Hawaii

More than 16 months after an earthquake and tsunami devastated parts of Japan, debris has begun to wash ashore in the U.S.'s Pacific Ocean coastal states. The debris first arrived on beaches in Alaska and Oregon but now Hawaii is being affected. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has confirmed that a large plastic bin which washed ashore on Friday was a piece of debris from Japan and had floated across the Pacific Ocean. The sad reality is that the massive amount of tsunami debris is still only a fraction of total amount of marine pollution that is out there. The battle exists on many fronts.
