Record-breaking ocean cleanup removes 25,000 pounds of trash from Great Pacific Garbage patch, paving the way for cleaner oceans

In a groundbreaking achievement, The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit environmental engineering organization, recently conducted its most significant trash extraction operation to date, pulling an impressive 25,000 pounds of debris from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This massive cleanup effort spanned four weeks, resulting in a total collection of around 50 tons of trash.

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a sprawling accumulation of floating waste, has seen exponential growth, even fostering a new coastal ecosystem. The Ocean Cleanup’s innovative approach aims to remove 90% of ocean plastic by 2040, employing cutting-edge technology and an unwavering commitment to restoring our oceans.
