Thanks to our generous supporters, dedicated ambassadors, and engaged partners, 5 Gyres had a fantastic 2020.
Despite COVID-19 and its challenges, we achieved some pretty amazing things this year, all thanks to people like you. To continue empowering action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution, we need your support, so thank you for visiting this page and donating to 5 Gyres’ mission.
Our 2020 points of pride include:
Pivoting to an all-digital education platform with our new program, Trash Academy/La Academia de Basura which uses our existing NGSS-correllated curriculum.
Engaging our Ambassadors in a Global TrashBlitz during International Coastal Cleanup Month.
Empowering our Colorado partners to host their very own TrashBlitz to collect local data to inform real change in their municipality.
Writing several research papers about the pervasiveness of plastic in our ocean, on land, and even in the bodies of camels!
With your help, our future is looking brighter than ever. In 2021, our aim is to expand TrashBlitz into all 18 major watersheds across the country, offer Ambassadors a chance to apply for our Microgrant program, and take on new and exciting science initiatives to enact better policy decisions that affect us all.
We can’t do this work alone. Will you join us?
Donate today or start a fundraiser with your family and friends so that we can continue our efforts in keeping the planet plastic-free.
Thank you for your support, today and everyday.
