Plastic pollution is a global problem – the world’s oceans are filled with millions of tons of plastic particles that choke sea life and release hazardous toxins as they decompose. 19-year-old Boyan Slat has come up with a brilliant solution that could rid the seas of plastic pollution – and it’s proven by a year-long feasibility study – but he needs your help to make it a reality! Boyan’s Ocean Cleanup Array crowdfunding campaign has raised over 1.6 million dollars – but it has just 10 days left to hit its $2 million funding goal – so donate today to help clean the world’s oceans of plastic pollution!

Oh, the mighty mouse – the tiny creature on whom humanity’s experiments have saved countless lives, and they’re up to it again. This time, scientists at the University of Edinburgh have managed to grow a fully functional organ inside a mouse, which opens up the possibility that one day we might be able to manufacture compatible organs for transplant from scratch – without the need for human donors.

Plastic waste in the ocean is no joke – there are millions of tons of it out there, wreaking all kinds of havoc on sea life and the ocean’s ecology. It’s easy to feel helpless, especially since the problem has become so enormous, but there is a way that even the most land-locked citizens can help clean things up. The Ocean Cleanup Array , invented by 19-year old Boyan Slat, has proven to be a viable solution for cleaning the oceans – and that’s where you come in. Right now the Ocean Cleanup team is looking for funding to launch the project so that we can finally start removing a significant amount of plastic from the ocean, and your donation could make all the difference .

Comments Off on INTERVIEW: Boyan Slat, Teenage Inventor of the Ocean Cleanup Array

Last year, 19-year-old inventor Boyan Slat made waves by designing an “ Ocean Cleanup Array ” which he claimed could remove 72.5 million tons of plastic from the world’s oceans. Although his idea received criticism from some quarters , a year-long feasibility study concluded that the idea will work. Not just that—it could potentially remove half the plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch within a decade . The last 12 months have been a whirlwind for the young inventor; he’s given talks around the world and conducted tests in The Azores . We sat down with Boyan Slat to ask him about his inspiration, dealing with criticism and what the future holds for the Ocean Cleanup Array .
