Turning off the tap
Eighty percent of ocean plastic comes from the world’s 1,000 most polluted rivers. If we want to make a difference, we need to find a way to turn off the tap and stop trash from ever making its way to the ocean in the first place.
That’s why, on May 14, in partnership with Sungai Watch, we placed our very first river barrier in Batu Bolong in Indonesia.
This effort was funded by our blockchain token, the PANGEA Ocean Cleanup Coin ($POC). The token will help us achieve our mission to install 16,000 river barriers in 1,000 of the world’s most polluted rivers. Every barrier location is strategically chosen to maximize our impact.
Together, we will stop massive amounts of trash which would end up in the sea, damaging marine life and the future of our environment.
