Other Initiatives Accelerating Change
Developed by 3 students who were roommates in Spain, this personal project stemmed from their desire to create something to improve the world we live in. After brainstorming several ideas, they decided to tackle what they consider one of the most pressing issues of the 21st Century : improper disposal of plastic waste.
This team of students from varied field of studies, designed a Micro Plastic Filter that will be attached on to boats that already pass the Mediterranean on a daily basis. This project does not deploy extra boats to filter the ocean on a one of basis, which will result in unnecessary CO2 admission. Additionally, to increase its impact, the filtered plastics will be gathered and channeled to companies, that will reuse these plastics when manufacturing other products.
