Collect marine wastes
Clean Ocean Ensemble collects marine waste as one approach to solving the marine waste problem.
There are two targets to collect: the shore (beach) and underwater (seabed).
Collect waste from the shore (beach).
There are many beaches where waste can be traced by the tide.
However, it’s difficult to access in the places where waste can be accumulated because of the topography.
If the waste is left, it will be broken into pieces by the waves as they hit the rocks.
As a result, marine waste becomes increasingly micronized and even more difficult to collecte.
We are collecting waste from the coast (beach) before it becomes microscopic.
The beach cleanup is an activity that everyone can participate in. And we hope that more people will join in this activity.
Let’s work together to collect marine waste and leave clean oceans for future generations.
Collecte waste from the ocean (seabed)
The amount of waste in the ocean is increasing every year if we won’t collect.
We see more and more plastic bottles and plastic bags floating in the ocean. Also, we see news reports about microplastics accumulating on the sea floor, etc.
There is a danger that marine organisms will eat as the food. And it will go around and enter the human body. Also we will lose the possibility of developing new drugs using the ecology of the ocean floor.
Although the number of people collecting marine waste has been increasing, it is still not enough to leave clean oceans.
We collecte marine waste from the ocean and seabed.
We believe that the waste accumulated by the tidal currents is not only on the shore, but also on the seabed and under the sea.
After taking safety into consideration, we will approach the area where the waste is accumulated by boat and collect by diving and using fishing materials.
We are collecting data through marine waste collection.
We are mainly investigating the amount and composition of garbage.
At the collection stage, each bag is sorted according to the type of garbage, and then the weight is recorded with a measuring.
The survey data is accumulated and used for environmental education projects and activity reports.
We believe that it is important to improve our collection activities as well as our survey methods to make them more effective.
We are trying to reuse the marine debris we collect.
Mainly, reusing means arts of marine waste, and recycling means products of marine waste.
We believe that it is important to seek new ways to use marine waste.
