家 : GAH - Hermitcrab home

The total amount of plastic produced worldwide is close to 8.3 billion tons, and about 63 billion tons, or 75%, was discharged as garbage.
The garbage causes 570,000 hermit crabs to die each year.
In addition, the sea's microplastics threaten human health.
Interestingly, the areas where microplastics are mostly distributed and the areas where hermit crabs live are the same as the waterfront.
Accordingly, we are going to create a hermit crab house using palm activated carbon that absorbs microplastics on the shore, to provide a sweet house for hermit crabs on the shore and a safe environment for humans.
