The solution to marine plastic pollution begins with you. Everyday, plastic garbage flows out to sea from every watershed in the world. With 7 billion people on the planet, that’s a heck of a lot of plastic. For each of the 5 Gyres, we’ve created a simple promise we’re encouraging our supporters to take to… Be The SEA Change they want to see in the world.

Will you make the promise?




I promise to:

•Bring my own water bottle, mug, utensils and reusable bag.

•Say ‘No Plastic Straw Please” when I dine out.

•Buy what’s in the least amount of plastic packaging.

•Pick up 5 pieces of plastic pollution I see littered whenever I’m out.

•Engage family, businesses and co-workers to make this promise too.


Make the Promise

By making this promise, you’re changing to world, and you’ll also get the latest news from The 5 Gyres Institute. You can opt out anytime, and we promise to never spam you.

Thank you!
