5 Gyres Institute

 

 

The 5 Gyres Institute is a globally focused marine conservation nonprofit concerned with the ever growing problem of persistent marine plastic pollution. Our model pairs citizens and scientists to take part in epic sailing adventures across the world to gather crucial data on the amount, type and toxicity of marine born plastics in our shared oceans. When we return we take that evidence to our communities to communicate the problem and work for common sense policy to reduce the single-use plastic consumption that is plaguing our seas. Our crew has become instant ambassadors for the cause when they return, armed with unparalleled knowledge of the issue and possess an authentic vantage from garbage patch central. We are thrilled to be working with Osprey as they meet our highest criteria for design that incorporates repurposed materials and lifelong durability. After the abuse we've shown our Osprey packs on the high seas and endless global travel, we know one thing for certain-- Osprey packs are built to last. As a company who understands that their bottom line is based on nature being nature, Osprey's corporate ethics and ethos makes us proud to call them a partner for change.
