Tensie Whelan recalls the cruise she took in spring 2019 hosted by SoulBuffalo. Her companions on the ship included major plastic producers and users, nonprofit organization, social entrepreneurs, investors, funders, and academics. Over the course of the cruise, the crew experienced the challenge of plastics in oceans up close.
Excerpt: "Yet the truly devastating experience was this: Remember those crystal-clear waters 650 miles out in the middle of nowhere? We all took turns in a zodiac pulling a small filter behind us for 30 minutes. Each filter came back with 10 plus microplastic bits pulled from the top layer of those beautiful waters. These plastic fragments had not been visible to the naked eye."
