After years of testing and millions in funding, the Dutch enterprise The Ocean Cleanup set its first trash collection system out to sea. System 001, as it’s known, traveled across the San Francisco Bay on Saturday, September 8, in preparation for its eventual journey onto the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. 

The entire event was livestreamed on YouTube, with lots of commentary from Ocean Cleanup staffers, including project manager Henk van Dalen.
