The Ocean Cleanup has developed the world’s first feasible method to rid the oceans of plastic.
Every week, a vast amount of plastic end up in the oceans, where it damages eco-systems, impacts global economies and enters the food chain, thereby potentially damaging us humans.
Instead of going after the plastic with vessels and nets – which would take many thousands of years and billions of dollars to complete – The Ocean Cleanup has developed a passive drifting system which allows the ocean currents to concentrate the plastic itself. They estimate to be able to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (between Hawaii and California) in five years’ time from full-scale deployment.
Your donation will help The Ocean Cleanup move towards full-scale deployment in the North Pacific by 2020.
