Dr. Marcus Eriksen, Director of 5 Gyres Institute, will be visiting Chestertown to talk about plastics in the world’s oceans.  Eriksen formerly captained two different boats made out of recycled plastics for journeys on the open ocean promoting awareness and reduction of plastics. The 5 Gyres Institute regularly completes sailing expeditions around the world for their research on plastics in an attempt to create “a planet free of plastic pollution.”
