Where: Keen Footwear, 926 NW 13th Ave., No. 210, Portland, OR 97209

In time for Earth Day, two environmentalists cycling 2,000 miles in a quest to end the age of disposable plastics will pedal into Portland, Salem and Newport for free public lectures starting April 21 on the “plastic soup” fouling our oceans.
The Oregon presentations are among dozens that Dr. Marcus Eriksen and Anna Cummins of California’s Algalita Marine Research Foundation (AMRF) are delivering to educators, policymakers and the public along the West Coast as part of JUNKride 2009. The couple launched their 15-city bicycle ride/lecture tour in Vancouver on April 4 and will conclude it in Tijuana in June.
