Efficient Ocean Cleanup Method is 100% Driven by Currents


After a series of dives in Greece where he saw more plastic bags than fish in the ocean, 19-year old Boyan Slat developed an ocean cleanup method that is 100% driven by the currents. Slat believes his method can extract up to 70 billion kilos of trash, almost half of the total garbage, in the Great Pacific, in just 10 years.

He now leads a team of engineers and researchers at The Ocean Cleanup Foundation and continues to generate support for the project through a crowdfunding campaign.
