Klean Kanteen co-owner Jeff Creswell joined the 5 Gyres North Atlantic Gyre Expedition, on a 7-day sail from Bermuda to Rhode Island, helping collect data and info about plastic pollution in the ocean.
Klean Kanteen is proud to support the important work of 5 Gyres Institute. To understand the impact of plastic pollution, 5 Gyres studies the five subtropical gyres by sailing through them. Unlike other ocean conservation organizations, 5 Gyres doesn't just take scientists out into the ocean, they take artists, writers, musicians, journalists, students, teachers - anyone who will serve as a 5 Gyres Ambassador for change. The goal is to give stakeholders from all walks of life an authentic vantage from gyre central.
To communicate about the global impact of plastic pollution, 5 Gyres shares findings through multimedia outlets and peer-reviewed publications. They strive to help stop the flow of plastic to the sea. 5 Gyres campaigns help educate the public, politicians, companies, and other organizations to help reduce pollution. Post-consumer cleanup efforts also focus on coastal and island debris removal and mitigation. Klean Kanteen proudly continues to work with amazing non-profits like 5 Gyres and others to help protect ocean health for generations to come.
