If you Love Something Set it Free; or is that Just Making Pollution?

Water Drone Collects Marine Debris - The world produces 300 million tons of plastic each year, but only about 10 per cent is recycled. The rest is dumped, landfilled or escapes as trash into landscapes, lakes, rivers and the ocean. About 7 million tons end up in the ocean each year, making up roughly 75% of all marine debris.
