I'd like to spread the word about a project I just came across. Is The Ocean Cleanup. Young Boyan Slat from the Netherlands and his team are developing a unconventional method to clean our Ocean from all the plastic debris with minimal impact on the environment. A solution to a problem that was deemed unsolvable.
They got my utmost respect for their out-of-the-box thinking, resilience and cause. In addition to minding your plastic in day to day life, they offer different opportunities to support them. Just browse through their website. If you consider a donation, be aware the site seems to switch to dutch language inevitably. You need to push "verder" wich means continue in order to process.
Bryan explains the project, the results of the feasibility study and the actual problem in this 17 minute video.
