Co-Founders, The 5Gyres Institute
"5Gyres is thrilled to be participating in NextWave. Having seen the impacts plastic pollution is having on our marine ecosystems world wide, were committed to finding new ways to collaborate on source reduction and systems change, to protect our already strained ocean environment. Given the ubiquitous nature of plastic waste, we can only solve this problem through effective, strategic partnerships, such as this one."

"Net-Works has been committed to redesigning supply chains to reduce marine plastics, replenish declining fish stocks and improving the lives of marginalised coastal communities in developing countries since 2012. We welcome NextWave’s commitment to create operational and sustainable systems to reduce ocean-bound plastic pollution at scale, and look forward to sharing our experiences to help further their mission. Ultimately, it is the world's poor and rural fishing communities in developing countries that are at the sharp end of ocean-bound plastics, and efforts such as NextWave are essential to redressing the balance."
