Hawaiian Crew Does The Best Of Ocean Clean-Up Of Garbage Ever Recorded From The Gyre

The ocean is polluted by over 5.25 trillion plastic pieces with around eight million pieces find their way into the oceans every day.
The pollution is killing life in the ocean.
Ocean Voyages Institute recently undertook to ocean clean up expedition that lasted 48 days. They removed 103 tons of garbage from the well-known Great Pacific trash point, the Gyre.
That is the most weight ever recorded of trash lifted off the Gyre (Pacific trash vortex).
Their goal was to haul in at least 100 tons of garbage. According to Mary Crowley, the executive director and founder of the Ocean Voyages Institute, their aim is to try to salvage the planet’s ecosystem.
In 2019, they lifted out 48 tons in two ocean clean-ups.
There remains a lot to be done as the Pacific Gyre still has the most plastic. The area is between California and Hawaii.
The garbage will be upcycled and disposed of in the right way.
Matson has been looking for a way to clean the Pacific Gyre. They are impressed by the Institute’s efforts because they are committed to taking care of the environment. They are hoping to support them to continue with the work. Matt Cox, the CEO and chairman informed.
