The Ocean Cleanup is an NGO aiming to rid the world’s oceans of plastic by 2040. Starting this year, they will be removing plastic from the ocean at a larger scale. Collecting this plastic, however, begs the question: ‘What to do with this waste after removing it from the ocean?’ Preferably, a sustainable purpose is needed so that it can no longer pollute the environment. Furthermore, The Ocean Cleanup is fully dependent on donations. It would be ideal if the collected plastic could in some way help finance the clean up as a more stable source of income. Finally, ocean plastic is not a homogeneous material, making for quite the design challenge. The final solution groups the ocean plastic material into three material tiers, with a separate strategy for each tier.
