Hi friends & family. I'm running the SF Marathon on Sunday 7/29/12 & fundraising for my friend's (Doug Woodring) non-profit, Ocean Recovery Alliance. I first heard of the Pacific Gyre (aka the Trash Vortex) three years ago through a BBC article & I immediately emailed Doug to see how I can help clean up the mess. You might think this is an impossible task, but it's not. Big things are accomplished in small steps. Thanks for your support in the cause and because you care.
The focus of the Ocean Recovery Alliance is to bring together new ways of thinking, technologies, creativity and collaborations in order to introduce innovative projects and initiatives that will help improve our ocean environment. IN OTHER WORDS, they're figuring out how to clean up the giant mess that is wreaking havoc in the ocean ecosystem.
