Thousands Of Pounds Of Trash Per Day Diverted

What a simple invention to help curb trash in the ocean!

Each year millions of recreational boats set out to sea, tossing their waste directly into the water. Unbelievable but true.

Frenchman Barthelemy Dominici designed trash receptacles for this crowd, that are so popular they work without any advertising or support from the authorities.

Since 2002 he has installed 130 receptacles along the coastlines of France.

It's more than a drop in the ocean - these bins each collect about 330 lbs a day in the season!
