The 5 Gyres Institute is a leader in the global movement against plastic pollution. They’ve been working diligently since 2009 to better understand the implications of plastic pollution in our oceans, and working with the scientific community to develop solutions through education and advocacy. The 5 Gyres team has completed 19 expeditions to conduct firsthand research on plastic pollution in oceans, gyres, lakes, and rivers. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. 5 Gyres supports and is supported by community members, now with over 1,800 Ambassadors in 66 countries working together to fight the global plastic pollution crisis. Through education, adventure, research, and advocacy, 5 Gyres is helping put current and future generations on a sustainable path based on zero-waste culture and circular economies. They’re working to change the way the world uses and discards plastic.
