The Ocean Cleanup - Ambition of an 18-year old to remove garbage in Great Pacific
Weird enough for someone who is heavily seasick to spend so much time thinking about the ocean. Boyan Slat – a 27-year-old Dutch inventor, created the world’s first plastic cleanup system, targeting the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Boyan Slat - CEO of The Ocean Cleanup
After a diving trip in Greece when he was 16 years old, he was shocked sighting more plastic bags than fish.
He then founded The Ocean Cleanup at the age of 18 to build the plastic bag cleaning system that is more effective than a net.
Watch how his idea turns into the future of ocean cleaning:
