Where's The Ocean Cleanup?



The Ocean Cleanup

2021 Aug 5th - The Ocean Cleanup with System 002, aka Jenny, has returned to the
Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) with the next iteration of their ocean cleanup design for two six-week tests.

To us, direct action to mitigate a problem (ocean debris), is commendable and worth our support,
even if it's just by raising awareness.
