THE OCEAN CLEANUP
The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization, is developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. When they have achieved the goal of a 90% reduction in ocean plastic, the project will be finished and our work will be done.
The Ocean Cleanup’s team consists of more than 90 engineers, researchers, scientists and computational modellers working daily to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans primarily from rivers. The plastic afloat across the oceans – legacy plastic – isn’t going away by itself. Therefore, solving ocean plastic pollution requires a combination of stemming the inflow and cleaning up what has already accumulated.
