Being an archipelago, most of the parts of my country is surrounded by water. It is however dismaying to know that considerable portions of these waters are now dirty and polluted. An immediate solution to this pressing problem needs to be addressed.
Aside from developing a heart for the environment and massive change in discipline, the invention by Australian surfers Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski is exactly what my country needs to keep its sea, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water clean.
It’s called ‘seabin’, a trash bin that floats in the water. A water pump maintains constant water flow into the bin, bringing with it floating garbage and debris. These refuse items are then caught in a strainer-like net bag. The water is then sucked through the bottom of the bin, into a water pump and then pumped back into the sea.
It is a simple yet brilliant ocean cleaning system that could easily be implemented in seaports and harbors around the country. The inventors have Indiegogo Campaign site that has been set up to collect funding so that they can carry out large scale production and commence with cleaning bodies of water.
