Reduce Ocean Garbage With One Simple Invention

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Ocean garbage has been a terrible problem on the planet for a long time. It has resulted in habitat destruction, injury, and death in many sea animals. The problem has become so extreme that a whale was discovered with over 100 plastic cups,1000 pieces of string, and 80 bags inside it. For a total of 6 kilograms of garbage inside it. This is just one story of the garbage plaguing life in the ocean.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however. A Dutch inventor known as Boyan Slat created an invention which can reduce and possibly remove ocean garbage. With this petition, you are signing in order to show the Dutch government that Boyan Slat's company (The Ocean Cleanup) should be funded so they can create more of these inventions and greatly reduce the amount of garbage in the ocean.
