Plastic Waters

Experience this unique exhibit brought to us by Alliance for the Great Lakes and 5 Gyres that shows the impact of plastic pollution in our oceans and Great Lakes. Combining art and science, Plastic Waters is a collection that consists of artifacts 5 Gyres has gathered from sailing expeditions around the world including a 35- pound mass of plastic bags pulled from the stomach of a camel. The exhibit also shows the story of how thousands of volunteers participate each year in the Alliance’s Adopt a Beach program to remove trash – much of it plastic – from shorelines around the lakes.
