Seabin Project Cleaning Up Waterways

The Seabin Project┬áis an elegantly designed floating vacuum that its designers say can be used to clean waterways, marinas, harbors and more. Here’s how it works:

The Seabin is situated at the waters surface and is plumbed into a shore based water pump on the dock. The water gets sucked into the Seabin bringing all floating debris and floating liquids into the Seabin. We catch all the floating debris inside the Seabin and the water then flows out through the bottom of the bin and up into the pump on the dock.

The project is currently crowdfunding development via Indiegogo.
