Green job: Crew member for Vacs from the Sea expedition wanted!

(the vacuum people) and the research organization 5 Gyres are heading out on a joint sea faring expedition, trawling the South Atlantic for plastic, and they're inviting one devotee to join the expedition through the Beagle Channel to Valdivia, Chile as a part of the crew.

The 5 Gyres mission is to conduct research and report back on the global impact of plastic pollution in the world's oceans. Their expedition will start in Walvis Bay, Namibia, and end in Montevideo, Uruguay, and they'll be picking up plastic in the South Atlantic all along the way. The plastic will be analyzed at their lab in Redondo Beach, CA, and sent to Electrolux to be a part of the Vac from the Sea exhibition. Read the Vac from the Sea blog for more information on the trip and check out the video below on their Vacs from the Sea program.
