While System 002 has been cleaning the Great Pacific Garbage Patch for almost a year, our Ocean Team has been developing System 03, which will be the blueprint for scale-up. Subscribe to our channel to stay updated: https://bit.ly/371k8sN

Trash accumulates in five ocean garbage patches, the largest being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.

The ocean is big. Cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch using conventional methods – vessels and nets – would take thousands of years and tens of billions of dollars to complete. After fleets of The Ocean Cleanup systems are deployed into every ocean gyre, combined with source reduction, The Ocean Cleanup projects to be able to remove 90% of ocean plastic by 2040.
