Human kind is constantly assaulting the ocean and those that live in it. We pollute our waters with chemicals, garbage, oil, and sewage and the ocean has no way to fight back. Many of the marine life is in danger due to our carelessness. One company, The Ocean Cleanup, is looking to revert some of the wrong we have done by clearing the ocean of plastic. They will utilize passive cleanup units to harness the oceans currents and capture all sorts of debris. The captured plastic will then be recycled to make more barriers creating a self sustaining operation.
