The Institute for Environmental Education would like to make you aware of an intriguing exhibit in the
Doyle Library called
Saving Our Synthetic Seas.
Saving our Synthetic Seas is a traveling exhibit created by the 5-Gyres Institute. It tells the story about science, through art and personal experience about the lives of people impacted by plastic pollution, from scientists at sea, to waste-pickers in India, and all the way to Japan where tsunami survivors shift through mountains of debris. The exhibit includes materials collected on research expeditions, including 150 pounds of netting, a boat from the Japanese Tsunami, and water samples from the major ocean gyres. The highlight of the exhibit includes several unique pieces of art made from plastic.

SRJC is excited to host this travelling exhibit through March 2014. The exhibit is located on the 2nd Floor of the Doyle Library in the SouthWwing. Please join us for a presentation and Open House on January 23rd from 5 - 6 p.m. A speaker from the 5-Gyres Institute will on hand to discuss the exhibit and the Institute's research.  In addition, representatives from the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation, Sierra Club - Redwood Chapter, and Sonoma County Conservation Action will be presenting about plastic pollution in Sonoma County. This exhibit is timely as Sonoma County is working to pass a single-use plastic bag ordinance throughout the region.
This exhibit is sponsored by the 5-Gyres Institute, SRJC Library staff, Student Affairs Office, Associated Students Senate, and Students for Sustainable Communities. A special thanks to Jessica Jones, Cherry Li-Bugg, Phyllis Usina, Alicia Virtue, Anne O'Toole, Josh Adams, Hunter Share, Robert Ethington and Sahara Chaldean for making this exhibit possible.

Open House:  January 23, 2014, 5 - 6 p.m.  Doyle Library, 2nd Floor, South Wing

         Shirlee Zane, Sonoma County Supervisor, District 3
         Carolynn Box, 5 Gyres Institute
