“One of the goals is to make the Seabin from our own plastics to create another Seabin to capture more, it’s a domino effect,” say the creators. “The second goal is to create a world where we don’t need the Seabin.”

They make nearly everything in-house themselves and aim to start shipping mid to late 2016. You can help make this happen by contributing through Indiegogo – at the time of writing, they’ve collected $39,766 out of their $230,000 goal.
