Crowd funder for a Seabin in Bristol

You may not have noticed but Bristol’s harbourside is filled with rubbish, plastic and pollutants.

However ‘The Bristol Seabin Project’ is looking to increase clean up efforts by raising enough money for Bristol’s first ever Seabin.

What’s a Seabin I hear you ask?

Well it’s essentially a bin that can catch;

  • 90,000 plastic bags/pieces of debris a year
  • an estimated 1.5 Kgs of floating debris per day (depending on weather and debris volumes) including microplastics up to 2 mm small

And how does a Seabin work?

It will cost £3,000 to get Bristol it’s first Seabin and in the last few days over £2,585 has been raised and it’s looking likely that the target will be hit.

The project has managed to get the full go ahead from Bristol City Council, Harbourmaster and several other organisations now with more support coming in everyday.
