Plastic Free July is Here!

5 Gyres is taking a trip down memory lane this summer by revisiting one of our most community focused expeditions, the 2015 Voyage to the Bahamas. 

Stay tuned to our social channels for fun stories from the crew!

We're celebrating by screening our friend and supporter, Jack Johnson's film, The Smog of The Sea on July 15th via Facebook Live at 11am PT.
Afterward, we're taking a look at "How it started, How it's going" on our Instagram with various crew members like Jack Johnson, Pearl Gottschalk, Matt Prindiville, Madeleine Wallace, and David Stover!

Looking for swaps, quizzes, and info? 

Stay tuned to our channels for activations from our brand partners in collaboration with our ambassador, Creative Director and Artivist Marina Testino! We'll also be sharing facts on plastic pollution, quizzes to test your knowledge, and simple swaps to make your life #plasticfree! Follow along here.
