Our Philosophy: Globalize ideas, not stuff.
The linear economy from extraction to consumption and pollution is creating mountains of trash in 1000's of communities worldwide. By transitioning to a circular economy, we eliminate waste. We do this by rethinking products and packaging in the linear economy, and reinventing the alternative in the circular economy. Zero Waste practices happing on the ground globally are making that shift happen.
The mission of The 5 Gyres Institute is to empower action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, education, and adventure. Leap Lab directly supports the "Nix the 6" campaign. Click here to learn more.
