Cleaning the Ocean - It might be possible!

I wanted to share with you this special project, which seems to be the 1st real plan to try to clean up our oceans from our last 40 years of plastic usage : The Ocean Cleanup.

It all started when then 16-year-old Boyan Slat was scuba diving in Greece and was surprised to see more plastic than fish. 5 years later, the Ocean Clean up launched on the 8th of September its first clean-up system from San Francisco Bay, into the North Pacific, using advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. If everything goes fine the scale up could start in 2020, aiming at cleaning 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch every 5 years.

Go Go Ocean clean up!
