What Was Gehh Like?



As I arrived on the island of Gehh I was shocked by the amount of trash that was lying all around the island. From one end to the other end was a disaster. Countless plastic bottles, shoes, glass bottles, bottle caps, cans, and other unknown trash. Trash consumed every bit of the tiny island. Gehh is a strip of land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. A multitude of garbage is washed onto shore every year creating a huge mess on the island. I’ve never seen so much trash just scattered all over the place. We picked up so much trash but at the end of the day it was devastating to see that the result wasn’t much of a difference.
