A 20-yr-old on a mission: The Ocean Cleanup

Take just 7 minutes to learn how Boyan Slat plans to save our oceans from deadly plastic, it's truly inspiring...

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

Did you know that roughly 8 MILLION TONS of PLASTIC enter our OCEANS every year?

Causing at least ONE MILLION seabirds and ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND marine animals to DIE annually?

OUR human race has caused species to become EXTINCT. We are THREATENING the species that remain. We are KILLING native ecosystems.

And what about HUMAN health?

We leech DEADLY TOXIC CHEMICALS into our oceans everyday. These are concentrated by a MILLION in ocean plastics. They enter and bio-accumulate in the food chain, meaning the fish become contaminated and HIGHLY toxic for human consumption. Eating fish is now linked to CANCER, MALFORMATION and IMPAIRED REPRODUCTION.

These are MODERN DAY ISSUES that we are responsible for fixing in order to SAVE FUTURE GENERATIONS.

THERE IS A WAY. Around the world, some incredible people working together to solve this problem and save our oceans from plastic and toxic waste. We can HELP, simply by spreading AWARENESS.

Check out these surfers with a similar mindset who have created 'SEABINS' to clean up our marinas:

 

It has already started with surfers and environmentalist experts. Now WE can be apart of the solution too. Let's create a CLEAN EARTH together, otherwise...
