Join me as REI 's Shay Bickley and Out of Sight, Out of Mind Teammates Jason Self and Chris Bensch present a slide show of their "Portland to the Ocean Trashpedition", and discussion about the OSOM mission and "Never Ending Cleanup Contest". In early May 2010, Team OSOM paddled their kayaks from Portland to the Ocean with canoes in tow to serve as "garbage barges" to collect the trash found along this 100+ mile journey to the Columbia River's terminus at the Pacific Ocean. Find out about the journey documenting the path of plastic pollution from purchase and consumption to the storm drain, into the river and to the ocean and its eventual convergence with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. By documenting the effort to the trio hopes to stop plastic litter from making its way to sea and hope to inspire others to do the same.
Since REI has limited seating you need to sign up for this with REI directly here:
