Remove ~35.8 LBS of River Plastic
Stop plastic pollution in rivers before it reaches the ocean!
In partnership with Dollar Donation Club, Plastic Fischer builds and maintains “Trashbooms” that are installed in highly polluted rivers to catch plastic before it reaches the ocean.
80% of all ocean plastic comes from around 1,600 polluted rivers around the world. That’s about 11 million tons of plastic dumped into the ocean every year, killing over 1,000,000 marine animals.
These locally produced, low-tech and low-cost solutions stop plastic. Every bit of plastic removed is processed (either recycled or energy-recovered) to ensure it never returns to a landfill or a river ever again.
