The Ocean Cleanup
Millions of tons of plastic enter the world's oceans every year. While some of this pollution comes from beachgoers, commercial fishing, and careless corporations, a majority of it comes from rivers. In fact, approximately 90% of the plastic polluting our oceans comes from just 10 river systems!
In order to help solve the world's plastic pollution crisis, we must not only stop the new pollution from entering, but also clean up the existing pollution already harming our marine ecosystems. In order to do this, The Ocean Clean Up employs "Interceptors" that pick up trash from polluted river systems and has a fleet of ships deployed in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
