The Ocean CleanUp

Oh. My. God. I came across a certain post in 9GAG about a guy that had designed a way to clean plastic pollution in oceans and I was fascinated. Everything that has something to do with the environment automatically catches my eye and makes me dig deeper. His persistence and his passion are really admirable. I might have gone too crazy and read all about it. Maybe.

So he started this idea about three years ago when we was diving in Greece and he saw that there was more plastic than animals down in the oceans, and he made a little science project that was aimed to help clean and reduce the amount of plastic in the oceans. Not bad, right? We've all been in science fairs, exposing our nice experiments.

But he was driven by a passion. He wanted this to not just be a science project, but a real possible solution, so he did some research, modelled a first draft on his project and exposed it at a TEDx Event. He was brought down, criticized and held as a fool. No worries, he did some more extensive research, wrote down a list of 50 questions and decided to solve them all to make his project a viable project.

And hell he did.
