Floating Rubbish Bin That Cleans Oceans

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Two Australians, Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, created the Seabin, a floating rubbish bin that can collect plastic bottles, paper, oil, fuel, and detergent floating in the ocean. It was built as a cheap and low maintenance alternative to “trash boats.”

“One of the goals is to make the Seabin from our own plastics to create another Seabin to capture more, it’s a domino effect,” say the creators. “The second goal is to create a world where we don’t need the Seabin.”

They make nearly everything in-house themselves and aim to start shipping mid to late 2016. You can help make this happen by contributing through

It’s a low maintenance and a fairly cheap way to fight marine pollution
