INTRODUCING 5 GYRES
The 5 Gyres Institute is dedicated to empowering action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, education and adventure. The accumulation zones of plastics in the oceans, called gyres, are a result of the vortex of winds and currents occurring at latitude synonymous with continental deserts. Plastic is trapped within these currents, taking at least 10 years to cycle back out – if it doesn’t get consumed by marine life or sink to the bottom resulting in trillions of microplastic particles filing up our oceans.
A beautiful print inspired by a huge problem
The Smog of the Sea print is inspired by the billions of microplastics that currently circulate in our ocean. Plastic does not degrade; it just breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces, hence these specs of color decorating the collection. 5 Gyres is bringing awareness and looking for solutions to the ongoing microplastic crisis. This print is designed to not only be a reminder of what your plastic bottles, cups or straws could one day be, but to inspire us all to eliminate single use plastic.
