The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup

Scientists estimate that the the total amount of plastic product that has entered the ocean is in the range of 5.25 trillion pieces. Instead of going after all that plastic—which would take many thousands of years and billions of dollars to collect—The Ocean Cleanup uses long, ingeniously designed floating barriers to let the ocean currents concentrate the plastic itself.

Creators: Boyan Slat, The Ocean Cleanup
