New Emsworth Sea bin will Help Filter Harbour Rubbish
Plastic pollution is one of the most significant threats to ocean health worldwide. In spite of society’s many efforts to properly dispose of plastic waste, between 4 and 12 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the ocean each year, enough to cover every foot of coastline on the planet. And that amount is expected double in the next ten years.
Everyone can do something to reduce the amount of plastic that enters the ocean. You will be pleased to know that a new sea bin, which filters rubbish from the water, has officially launched in Emsworth Yacht Harbour. Thanks to the efforts of the Emsworth Yacht Harbour, The Chichester Harbour Foundation and Final Straw Solent.
Bianca Carr from Final Straw Solent states:
‘To me, it’s really important that we have children come down to learn more about the sea bins. One of the schools that came along to the launch went back to tell everyone else at the school about it, which is absolutely fantastic’.
The installation of a new sea bin will not only serve to protect the environment naturally but will also educate people on the uses of sea bins for years to come.
