The Ocean Cleanup system is on its way to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

After five years of gathering money through crowdfunding and testing different prototypes, the Ocean Cleanup aimed at cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is finally heading out to sea. The Ocean Cleanup uses currents and waves to collect trash in the system’s center. Floating particles are captured by a skirt while the push of the water against the nets that collects plastic safely propels fish and other marine life under and beyond the system. The ambitious project aims to collect up to five tons of plastics every month.
