THE STORY:

 

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.   

Please support us by making a donation.    

Dollar per mile = $1400

Quarter per mile = $350

Dime per mile = $140

Nickel per mile = $70

Penny per mile = $14

Or give us whatever you can to support.   

We promise to bike, use little to no single-use plastic, and spread the word on how to make our oceans a better place.  

 

All funds will go to support the Bike Tour and 5 Gyres.
