Australians Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski are on a mission to keep the oceans tidy with innovative product Seabin. Grand idea or project that’s likely to sink?

Australians Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski are on a mission to keep the oceans tidy with innovative product Seabin. The fab two-some, supported by a seed investment from Australian marine technology development Seabin Projectcompany Shark Mitigation Systems Pty Ltd have just exceeded their Indiegogo crowdfunding target of $230,000 to kickstart the production of their innovative and social impact product that literally catches floating rubbish, oil, fuels and detergents that pollute marinas, pontoons, lakes and harbours the world over.

How does the Seabin work?

This blurb via the Seabin site best explains:

Seabin Project“The Seabin is situated at the water's surface and is plumbed into a shore based water pump on the dock. The water gets sucked into the Seabin bringing all floating debris and floating liquids into the Seabin. We catch all the floating debris inside the Seabin and the water then flows out through the bottom of the bin and up into the pump on the dock.”

However with this type of article the pictures and videos do in fact tell a thousand words, so watch the video below that demonstrate best how Seabin aims to help rid the oceans of plastics and pollutions!

Impressed? Well with only a couple of days left to back their project you might want to join the thousands of supporters who have already backed their crowdfunding campaign, or just simply drop the guys a tweet to congratulate them on their efforts to date!
