The Ocean Cleanup Project
Boyan Slat, a 19-year-old engineering student, is behind The Ocean Cleanup project, which he proposes to clean up the plastic clogging the planet’s major bodies of water in five years.

Slat proposes setting a large garbage-sifting machine in the middle of the ocean to trap and collect millions of tons of plastic. Theoretically the ocean currents would push large patches of the debris into the boat’s floating booms.

Trawling for Trash in the Chesapeake Bay - Plastic detritus can be found throughout the Chesapeake Bay, especially in its underwater grasses. That’s a problem for several reasons. The bay’s underwater grasses, also known as submerged aquatic vegetation, represent a vital part of the estuary ecosystem (not to mention Maryland’s economy). Grass beds provide shelter for fish and crabs, stabilize the shoreline against erosion, and absorb nutrients from and return oxygen to the water.
