plastic pollution – phase III kickstarter

As we continue to unfold the story of the Penobscot Watershed in Maine and discover more about the importance of free-flowing rivers, we are happy to share some new developments in the next phase of 70 Degrees West.

We are in the planning stages of our next phase – Plastic Pollution in the Sargasso Sea. As we research deeper into this issue, we are continually shocked and deeply troubled by what is happening in our oceans on a global level. With an estimated 7 million tons of trash dumped into the oceans each year, it’s important to understand what’s happening and how we each play a role in affecting the state of our oceans; either adding to their degradation, or supporting their health. Every year this threat to both human and marine life gets worse, and something must be done now before it’s too late.

Please have a look at our Kickstarter video – AND SPREAD THE WORD! To all of our fans and followers who appreciate our project and the work it produces: WE NEED YOUR HELP. We are asking you to share this link with your community and social network in order to help us raise the money we need to complete our next phase!

    …We will follow your example, and create conscious on others of the consequences of the plastic pollution. This issue affects all of us.

  8. Truly a wonderful project… Thanks so much for highlighting this pervasive and horrifically sad (and seemingly growing) issue. As one who was raised in the Pacific, it breaks my heart to see this pristine beauty destroyed by our selfish waste.

  13. I love the outdoors and my method is leave no trace behind – you use it while out and about, you take it back with you. I recently visited the beach and was amazed at the amount of plastic and other items washing ashore. I make sure my vehicles are clean, so nothing accidently blows out and causes litter. Great Post – thanks for sharing!
