Nowadays, our planet has an alarming water bodies cleanliness problem. Without any significant figures, it is obvious that when you look at sea shores, water drainage systems, canals and other water pathways around the world, non-biodegradable garbages and hazardous chemicals dominate them. Our lifestyles are immensely affected. Feels like there's nothing more effective to do about it.
Luckily, two surfers living at the sea for so long made a revolutionary technology that will change our long-time worries. It is called the Seabin. Here's to the future of disposing million tons of ocean wastes.
Pete Ceglinski and Andrew Turton came up with a solution to their oceans' cleanliness-related frustrations.
Seabin is more like our usual fish tank's cleaning amenity.
As mentioned, the 'sucking' happens in surface level only. With the color, structure and other features the Seabin contain, the marine life would not be compromised.
Seabin had initial seed funding from Shark Mitigation Systems. The prototype is then carried in Spain for Crowdfunding.
Simply, the bucket is attached in a water pump system that works as if it sucks the water surface.
Of course, these surfers do not completely rely on the Seabin. Still, collaboration and collective effort is an important key to achieve the goal.
Oils, trash and other unnecessary compounds will be taken in and filtered by a filtering sheet.
In a very simple diagram, here's how the Seabin works.
The product has made a worldwide impact. Now, their crowdfunding request is close to their specified quota. Congratulations to the innovators. You are world changers!
