Majority of my childhood was always within the water.
There's nothing worse than being out there surrounded by plastic.
I was a product designer in another life.
It was my job to make plastic products.
And after a while, I realized that we didn't know stuff that I was making and so I stopped.
I met Andrew and he told me about this project and I just clicked.
For me, the project was amazing.
We could have a better time at the beach, because we're not swimming in plastic and pollution anymore.
We even ate better because the fish were healthier.
The marinas, ports and yacht clubs are the perfect place for the seabin.
There's no massive ocean storms.
It's a controlled environment.
It catches everything floating in the water.
Plastic bottle, paper, oil, fuel, and detergent.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Another good thing with the location of the seabin,
is that people can see what they're catching, what they're swimming in.
It's been a big change in our life.
We quit our jobs. We've taken all of our money. And we put our hearts and souls into making this happen.
One of their goals is to make the seabin from our own plastics,
to create another seabin, to capture more, it's a domino effect.
The second goal is to create a world where we don't need the seabin.
Imagine that we have a pollution-free ocean for our future generations.
