Help MarkO Productions on a Plastic Expedition.

We are working on making a documentary to help promote responsible use and disposal of plastic waste. Our Goal is to raise enough money to join the 5 Gyres Expedition to research plastic in the Atlantic Ocean. Over ten years ago, Captain James Moore discovered the now infamous Pacific Garbage patch. Captain Moore, and his team at Algalita Marine Research Foundation, has bean spreading the word about just how much plastic is in the North Pacific Gyre. The 5 Gyres team, a sister organization to the Algalita Marine Research Foundation, has resently discovered comparable amounts of plastic in the Atlantic Gyres and the Indian Ocean. They have several more expeditions planned in the future, and they have limited open spots available for researchers, filmmakers and enthusiasts. We are hoping for the opportunity to fill one of those spots on one of their journeys. But we can't do it without your help.
