A week ago, 5 Gyres, a non profit organization devoted to educating the public on plastic pollution, published a blog post about Team Marine's latest video on the first flush. Their name derives from the 5 major ocean subtropical gyres, which have now accumulated plastic pollution. 5 Gyres hopes to eliminate all plastic pollution in the ocean, a daunting yet reachable goal. 5 Gyres has an impressive website, which is not only well organized, but also includes an interactive map of all ocean gyres and their plastic pollution. Also, kudos to Marcus Eriksen and Anna Cummins were nominated by Team Marine's advisor, Benjamin Kay, to be Wyland Foundation Earth Month Heroes.
Thank you 5 Gyres for your inspiration and for mentioning us!!!
