Join in and help take the next crucial step towards saving our oceans.
What’s the problem?
We produce around 300 million tons of plastic per year which are polluting our oceans, killing at least one million seabirds and one hundred thousand marine mammals each year. It’s impacting on human health and causing billions of dollars of economic damage.
How can we fix it?
An organization called The Ocean Cleanup, founded by 19-year-old Boyan Slat, combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability.
What does it do?
The Ocean Cleanup method exploits natural ocean currents and winds to transport garbage into a collection platform. Solid floating barriers catch and concentrate the trash from the ocean, negating the risk of wildlife entanglement.
How can you help?
The company is attempting to crowdsourcing $2 million in 100 days in order to keep on testing and implementing their idea. So far it’s getting minimal publicity.
So if you have a spare dollar, donate. If you can’t donate, spread the word.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I’m in the middle of semester finals and haven’t had the time to find any quality photos. Things will be posting again by next weekend though. :)
