This Eco-Yacht Cleans The Ocean While It Sails

By Marissa Higgins

If you've ever wanted to get creative as a means of getting trash out of our oceans, you're not alone. After all, the amount of pollution that impacts our planet can feel overwhelming. While grassroots efforts to collect trash from our waters are certainly inspiring, one new approach has a lot of people talking.

Known as the "Ocean Saviour," this $52 million "eco-yacht" is designed to collect plastic from the ocean. Even more impressive? It will recycle that pollution while it sails.  

How will this work? The idea is that the ship will first pluck the trash from the ocean, then chop it and process it via onboard machinery. The end result is that it will be destroyed with a low-level of atmospheric pollution.
