The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization, developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats to ocean health worldwide. In spite of society’s many efforts to properly dispose of plastic waste, between 4 and 12 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year—enough to cover every foot of coastline on the planet. And that amount is expected to more than double in the next 10 years. Let that sink in for a moment.
