Recycled island / FRIENDLY TO THE OCEAN

Recycled island
Recycled island

In the past, people relied on manpower or ship with fishing nets to collect marine debris. But now we collect trash automatically. The principle is not only simple, but it can also operate 24 hours.
Recycled island connected to the water pump, the garbage will get into the detachable net bag to purifying the ocean. Besides, the island is provided land for sea-level rise in the future. We created floating platforms with different sizes, which can connect to be larger islands or extend the range of activities area.
