Weekend Watch: Pattie Gonia’s powerful poem about plastic

"Our mother is dying while we are out living."


Right now, there are more plastic pieces in the ocean than stars in the Milky Way, says Pattie Gonia, the backcountry queen. In her spoken word poem, “Everything to Lose,” Pattie Gonia calls on people to reflect on the impacts their actions have on Mother Earth.

The video comes before REI’s OptOutside campaign. This year, they’re doing things a little different. In addition to encouraging members to get outside on Black Friday, REI is urging people be part of a nationwide day of action on Nov. 29. Learn more here.
