Whale chin / Beach trash

Whale chin
Whale chin

Marine garbage not only pollutes the ocean, but also causes serious pollution to the beaches along the coast. Many islands have beaches full of garbage. And the whales in the ocean can use their breathing gills to help them filter a lot of dirt. This design is a bionic trash can made by imitating the process of whale breath filtration. It can effectively clean up the garbage on the surface and inside of the beach.
