did you ever wonder how you could prevent plastic from going into the Ocean? Then you really need to watch this interview.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Captain Jim “Homer” Holm about the organization he co-founded called The Clean Oceans Project…and mind did he ever blow me away with the information and technilogy he is found to clean up plastic from the Oceans and preventing us from adding more plastic into our Oceans.

So YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS VIDEO to learn more about this organization because it will be big a couple of years from now. You can also get in on the action and help the Clean Oceans Project reach it’s goal of a plastic-free Ocean.

During the interview, Homer and I discuss the available technologies out there that will not only allow his organization to pick up large amounts of plastic from the Ocean, but they will help prevent the introduction of new plastic pollution into the Ocean.

    I am a retired American living n Mexico. What can I do to hep remove plastics from the ocean floor?

  • Andrew Lewin says:

    Hi Peter, the best way to remove plastics from the Ocean while living in New Mexico is to stop using single use plastics in your daily life including plastic bags, plastic wrap, ziplock bages, straws, etc. Excluding those would be a great start. Afterwards, you could share what you are doing with your family and friends and show them how they could eliminate the same items from their daily lives.
