@5Gyres and @sfestuaryinstitute have been finding plastic in the San Francisco Bay and are trying to understand how much plastic waste rushes into the ocean after a big rain. Many of these plastics are micro sized and look like food to fish and other sea creatures. There is so much plastic present in our waterways now, that it is considered a major environmental contaminant and toxin. In honor of Oceans Day, @5gyres is at the state capital of California advocating for better plastic pollution management laws based on this research. @GordonandBettyMooreFoundation @rothys @PATAGONIA @plusmproductions #sfbaymicroplastics#5gyres#sfei
