Phorest Salon Software Pledges €10,000 to Ocean Cleanup Project Charity
A significant percentage of the plastic that enters the oceans from rivers and other sources drifts into large systems of circulating ocean currents, known as gyres. Once trapped in a gyre, the plastic slowly breaks down into micro-plastics and this is easily mistaken for food by sea animals.
However, the Ocean Cleanup organisation has created The Intercepto, the first scalable solution to prevent plastic from entering the world’s oceans from rivers. It is 100% solar-powered, extracts plastic autonomously and can be placed in the majority of the world’s most polluting rivers.
The Ocean Cleanup project’s ultimate goal is to reach a 90% reduction of floating ocean plastic by the year 2040.
