Six year old wisdom: "Other people will see us not littering and they will not litter too." Over 20 little sailors from @tisailing helped us look at microplastics on Treasure Island in San Francisco today. Our #GyreSailors Program brings plastic pollution education to young and adult sailors. @11thhourracing #sanfrancisco #plasticpollution #youth #treasureisland #microplastic
When you learn that #microplastic outnumbers #plankton in large parts of our ocean it makes you realise how vulnerable we are. Plankton ingest microplastic, transferring toxins into the marine food chain. Large creatures like fish, birds, turtles & mammals (incl. humans) are where these biomagnified toxins end up. You like seafood? It's in your best interests to save our oceans from the scourge of #plastic. Pic via @surfridersc #pickitup #binit
Come to the 5 Gyres office for pizza and microbead straining! Meet the staff and kick some microbead butt! We'll use the cleaned microbeads for educational kits. Hope to see you there! RSVP on our facebook page!
True. #plasticpollution #biodegradawhat
Day four! One-use plastic bags for produce are such a waste, switch to reusable produce bags to match your reusable grocery bags! #plasticfree #plasticpollution
