Green Eagle Car Wash And Team Seas Collaboration.
Green Eagle Car Wash LLC has pledged to donate a portion of all sales to Team Seas. The Team Seas campaign was created in October 2021 and has partnered with two of the largest ocean conservation non-profits in the US, Ocean Conservancy and the Ocean Cleanup. The campaign has successfully met its target and raised more than 30 million by the end of 2021, and continues to take donations in hopes of carrying on removing more plastic waste from the world’s oceans and rivers. Since this first cleanup, Ocean Conservatory has helped to pick up over 300 million pounds of trash from the ocean. Team Seas works with Ocean Conservancy and their partners to collect millions of pounds of plastic and rubbish from the beaches all around the world with the help of volunteers. Professional crews are also dispatched to clean up some of the world’s most iconic and fragile seascapes. The organisation provides the team with the best available science and collaborates with its International Coastal Cleanup local partners around the world to identify places where cleanips will have the greatest impact.
“The project’s other main partner is The Ocean Cleanup, a nonprofit engineering environmental organisation based in the Netherlands that develops technology to extract plastic pollution from the oceans and intercept it in rivers before it can reach the ocean. In late October 2019, they announced a new initiative, the Interceptor, to tackle the trash problem closer to the source, with plans to prevent 80% of riverine trash coming from 1000 rivers worldwide.The Ocean Cleanup also works with its Global Ghost Gear Initiative® members and partners on the sea to discover ghost gear graveyards across the world to aid the Team Sea campaign. The gear will be grappled or float to the surface, where it will be hooked onto boat cranes and hoisted out of the ocean by specially trained personnel. Following that, Team Seas will work with local authorities to ensure that any labelled, functional gear is returned to local fishermen. When possible, the remaining equipment will be recycled, and the remainder will be properly disposed of.
The Interceptor, a super waste-eating robot, was the starting point for the project and is the main tool used to collect and remove plastic waste from the oceans. Team Seas co-founder and former NASA engineer, Mark Rober employs the Interceptor to collect trash without the need for human interaction. Waste that is drifting down a river or around the shoreline is collected by a barrier that extends from the robot’s base once it is moored to a point on the shore. This barrier allows marine species to freely swim through and beneath it, but it catches anything floating near the surface of the water and loads it onto a conveyor belt. Anything captured on the conveyor belt is subsequently placed into one of four floating trash cans, where it is recycled or properly disposed of.” -Earth.org
