ABOUT THE OCEAN CLEANUP
Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, of which the majority spills out from rivers. A portion of this plastic travels to ocean garbage patches, getting caught in a vortex of circulating currents. If no action is taken, the plastic will increasingly impact our ecosystems, health, and economies.
The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. Their objective is to clean up 90% of ocean plastic pollution. To achieve this objective, they have to work on a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean and doesn’t go away by itself.
