Gallery: Inhabitat Sails The South Seas To Look For For Ocean Garbage –...

If you've been following Inhabitat, you may have heard that our intrepid NYC reporter and videographer Brit Ligget has just embarked on a journey as a crew member on the latest 5 Gyres mission, which will study plastic pollution in the south of Chile. She just started her journey and will be reporting back to Inhabitat each day about her trash-seeking voyage through the South Seas!

My trip was off to a rocky start but I’ve arrived in Puerto Williams, Chile and spent my first night on the Sea Dragon (our ship) last night. After the long haul from New York City to the southernmost town in the world, I was tired and out like a light. We have been delayed a day and will start our plastic adventure before dawn tomorrow when we set sail from Puerto Williams into the Beagle Channel. In the coming days I’ll be talking to Anna, our on-board scientist, Clive the skipper and Dale the boat manager about their previous plastic expeditions — they’ve all logged a lot of 5 Gyres trips. So stay tuned on Inhabitat and Electrolux’s Vac from the Sea site for some interesting chats with the experts on board.

    An fascinating dialogue is value comment. I believe that you should write extra on this matter, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
