Teenager’s Clean Machine

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Okay, I’m going to be upfront with you, this is not my normal kind of cool site, it’s just an article about a really super awesome idea that I think more people should know about!

I’ve been thinking a lot about Earth Day, mostly in part to the fact that my university has done a slew of crazy projects and experiments leading up to it, and when I found this article it seemed like a good fit for planet saving awareness building. So now that I’ve gushed you’re probably wondering what the heck this article is about.

Boyan Slat is a 19-year-old engineering student with a brilliant plan for cleaning the oceans.  Not only would his invention clean the ocean of plastic, but by selling the plastic collected it would be self-sufficient. 

So go read this article and learn all about Slat’s brilliant idea and watch his Ted Talk about his Gyre-cleaner!
