The 5 Gyres Last Straw Plastic Pollution Solutions Bike Tour takes place in OCT 2012 and will raise awareness of plastic pollution on the East Coast. The 5 Gyres staff will be bikeriding over 1400 miles from Boston, MA to Charleston, SC to educate the public on issues and solutions related to marine plastic pollution. 5 Gyres staff will be participating in events in at least 13 cities and be sharing stories from past research voyages to the five main gyres of the world where plastic pollution was discovered in almost every single water sample taken.
