I have traveled with 5 Gyres twice, doing research on plastic pollution in the ocean. The first time (2013) we sailed into the Sargasso Sea from Bermuda and conducted water sampling in the North Atlantic Gyre. The second time (2016) we went from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, all the way through the Northwest Passage, collecting samples of Arctic water almost every day. 5 Gyres has been a pioneer in bringing awareness of this issue to the world.
Please join me in raising money to further their work during Plastic Free July.
