To show that one person at a time can make the world a better place, because sometimes it only takes one to make a difference for Our Cleaner Planet.
Ten percent of the plastic produced every year worldwide winds up mostly in the pacific ocean gyre and created the great garbage patch. The extremely slow decomposition rate of plastic bottles leaves them to drift on the ocean for untold years. When plastics break down, they don't biodegrade, they photodegrade. This means the materials break down to smaller fragments. These readily absorb toxins which contaminate the ocean, and animals upon digestion. Refuse plastic absorbs pre-existing organic pollutants, including Bisphenol A (BPA) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

Our Cleaner Planet is developing a seaborne, eco-friendly, non-membrane filtering system for its ships. This will include a method of safely removing microscopic marine life from plastics and extracting harmful chemicals from the water. We are currently perfecting our methods of extraction to ensure a successful deployments at sea.
