Every year 6.4 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean. 100,000 marine life die each year from plastic entanglement. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a collection of marine debris in the North Pacific Ocean. 80% of the debris is from land-based activities in North America and China. It would take 67 ships and one year to clean up less than 1% of the North Pacific Ocean. Learn about our plastic problem and how you can lessen it’s impact on the planet.

  1. Float Europe(R) is currently in collaboration with EAWC Technologies to create a mobile offshore floating platform sufficiently large to contain the EAWC Technologies plasma machines as well as "garbage pit" recuperation for processing by EAWC Technologies with the end product - plastic pellets - that would be sold to manufacturing companies for recycling plastics - thus avoiding the actual manufacturing of plastic.
