In 2015, Sustainable Cleveland celebrated clean water to better connect people to their water resources to help restore, conserve and protect this valuable asset. This video is part of a larger video series that highlights different organizations, community leaders, and projects that are taking action to help clean our water. This video includes Dr. Marcus Eriksen of the 5 Gyres Institute, where he discusses the risks posed by plastic pollution in our lakes and rivers. It also includes examples from leaders in our community that are taking action to reduce the amount of plastics in our water, including University Hospital, the City of Cleveland, artist Allison Lukacsy, and the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority.

Much appreciation to Cleveland Water, University Hospitals, Cuyahoga River Restoration, and the Cleveland Metroparks for sponsoring this video series.
