SORT, Soils Oceans Rivers Trees.
I was over at North Stradbroke Island on the Australia day weekend and was giving some thought to the amount of rubbish that washes up on our beaches, not only on our major coastal beaches but also into our bays and waterways. I also recently noticed the local beach and harbour at Wynnum which is located on the shores of Moreton Bay, was starting to get its share of our waste as well. This led me to do some research to see if anyone was doing anything about the ecological threat to our coastlines. While surfing the web and being navigated by its ebbs and flows I came across these 2 Australian surfers that have been best mates since childhood who came up with an automated rubbish bin for marina docks called the Seabin.
The Seabin itself is built from recycled materials, it is hoped the invention will prevent toxic materials from floating out to the open ocean.
