note to whoever is reading "Pick up Plastic, Patrick" to children.

You are welcome to print a picture and let the children color it or paint it in. I was thinking that it would be good to take a field trip to the beach and pick up plastic, then perhaps make an art project out of it, say a sculpture or a mosaic. Thank you for reading "Pick up Plastic, Patrick!"

                 Patrick gets caught up in the trash and floats with it,
                  until he sees what he thinks is land in the distance.
Only to discover it is really the giant floating plastic island!
 No water, no food, no trees, sun beating down, 
Patrick passes out...................

                    It's just going to dump............

A ship is coming in the distance.

"We don't need to do that! 
There is no plastic island, and your seal is just imaginary. 
I'm going surfing! Ha ha ha ha ha"

We are picking up plastic, because Sealy told me 
 about a plastic island in the middle of the ocean.

Patrick runs by, "Michie! What are you doing?
"Why aren't you surfing?"
