“Floating Seabin” cleans the ocean by sucking rubbish from the water
- On the video, a floating rubbish bin called "Floating Seabin" has collected rubbish on the oceans automatically, created by Australian Pete Ceglinski and Andrew Turton. This video was introduced by Seabin Project in 2015.
It is designed for sheltered bodies of water, which is like marinas, ports and yacht clubs. The water is then filtered through the pump and added back into the ocean.
"Floating Seabin" has a catch bag, which made from natural fibre and can be manually emptied of litter on a daily basis. The bag has been designed to be easily removable by a single person.
They raised funds to create this product on a crowdfunding Indiegogo. The duo is currently investigating alternatives to the electricity-powered pump.
- Pete Ceglinski said about "Floating Seabin", "Marinas, ports and yacht clubs are the perfect place for the Seabin. There's no massive ocean storms, it's a controlled environment. It catches everything floating in the water: plastic bottles, paper, oil, fuel, and detergent, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Another good thing with the location of the Seabin is people can see what we're catching and what they're swimming in."
