Because I haven’t written an update on the Ocean Cleanup and Boyan Slat in a while…
Deployed in only 30 m of water
during a calm summer
It cost $2 million euros
and collected ZERO pieces of plastic.
If you, like me, are concerned about plastic in the ocean consider helping groups like The Ocean Conservancy who collected more than 18 million pounds of trash during the 2015 Coastal Ocean Cleanup or Mr. Trash Wheel and Professor Trash Wheel who has collected 1,050,540 lbs. of trash from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor since May 9, 2014. The problem of ocean plastic isn’t solved yet.
