Dave rocks the Gyre on KROQ!



This is well worth a listen, our friend "Sustainable Dave" holding his own with Kevin and Bean on KROQ.

You can imagine the ribbing he took from these guys - what kind of an eco nut saves his trash in the basement....for an entire year??!!?!?!

Dave proceeds to let KROQ listeners know that not only does he SAVE his trash, he carries an unusual piece around with him in his backpack.

You guessed it, a gyre sample, straight from the Pacific Ocean, collected by Marcus and myself on our recent crossing.....

Dave is on fire, and taking this zero waste thing on with a vengeance. Check out some of his awesome projects, listen to the interview here, and come visit us tonite at green drinks!

Hi! Welcome back! I can't wait to hear about your experiences at sea and see some of that plastic for myself. In fact, I'm giving a presentation on Rethinking Plastics at Wells Fargo on March 28. Any way to get some gyre plastic sample before then?

It just feels like this issue is starting to explode into human consciousness!

p.s. I think the link to the radio show clip might be broken...

By chance, have four inquisitive 7th grade girls from Lennox CA e-mailed you all? They're trying to put together a science fair project about plastic trash in the ocean. I'm their teacher. One of the crew of the Alguita
