Ocean Cleanup Returns with Plastic

Ocean Cleanup Plastic

In a previous edition of Update, we reported on the Ocean Cleanup device that was making its way to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a patch of plastic the size of Texas (but estimates now say it might be even larger). The Ocean Cleanup group has announced that its first device has now returned with 60 bags of plastic from the patch, marking a successful mission. Now, the group plans to turn this plastic into sustainable products to sell to fund future cleanup missions. Read more about the Ocean Cleanup and how you can become part of the effort to clean up our oceans here.
