Seabin Project are addressing the current oceanic littering problem with a whole solution strategy. Technology, Education and Science because the real solution is not the Seabins.
Each Seabin has the capability to remove 1/2 Ton of debris per year and for less than $1 a day. The Seabins are capturing macro plastics (bottles and bags) and also micro plastics 5-2mm in size.
Surface oils are also skimmed and new developments have ensured that micro fibres are now being removed from our oceans.
