The effect of garbage in the ocean is serious and dangerous. The consequences goes beyond floating debris on the water’s surface. Marine life and birds are constantly falling victims to the trash being thrown in the water by being entangled in it or getting mistaken as food.
Australians Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski are on a mission to clean up the ocean. They have created a floating “rubbish” bin that sucks all the damaging and unwanted material such as oil, fuel, detergent, and plastics. The men’s invention has two goals in mind: to eventually build the seabins from the plastic collected and to finally live in a world where their invention will not be required.
