5Gyres Crew Sets Sail to Research Plastic Pollution

Projects 5gyres

5 Gyres is a non-profit enviro group started by Algalita Marine Research Foundation who is dedicated to understanding plastic pollution through exploration, education, and action.

Earlier this year they set sail to research plastic pollution in the Atlantic Ocean, something that has never been investigated before. You may be familiar with the term “Pacific Garbage Patch” as this is the body of water between the U.S. and Asia.  5 Gyres is on many expeditions to research the other 5 gyres globally.

Partnered with Pangaea Explorations, their sailing vessel, they will be heading out on expeditions for the next year. If you want to join them, check out the 5 Gyres brochure below.

Rethink Fabrics has supplied them with a 100% recycled bottle t-shirts!

Bon Voyage and good luck crew!
