This project is our direct action initiative for 2020.
We will be deploying to normally remote and uninhabited shorelines to extract consolidated marine litter stocks.
Once recovered we will engage with circular economy solutions to prove the viability of value with Marin Litter in Canada.
The 2 primary outputs will be:
1 - End of life plastics to alternative fuels to offset the carbon footprint of the expeditions.
2 - Value plastics will be locally processed in Canada to second life consumer goods. This will be executed with partner student projects.
As Plastic Oceans Canada is known for film and education, this entire process will be documented and a full proof of concept report with student educational supplement will be produced to quantify the results.
Our entire budget includes:
3 X remote shoreline expeditions - 1 per Coast
1 X Cross Country tour powered off the fuel we create and working with local solution providers to process the value plastics
1 X Proof of Concept and Viability report of Circular Economy Solutions on Marine Litter
1 X 22 minute open source DocumentaryAll staffing and execution expenses included.
