Dear Friends of 5 Gyres,

This is a pivotal month in the plastic pollution movement. On February 28, global leaders will meet in Nairobi for the Fifth Session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-5.2). There, they will set the terms to negotiate a global treaty on plastic pollution.

Watch the video message below to hear from Lisa, our Director of Science & Innovation, about what's happening and why it matters.
