Clean Water & Sanitation
What is the problem you found?
Beaches are a huge part of Australia's culture and with global warming and pollution playing a huge factor in the health of marine life it's important we keep them clean. How might we limit the amount of pollution in our seas and on land.
Customer / Problem
Our problem is the amount of pollution and plastic going into the ocean and killing our sea life.
What Is Your Solution?
We have designed a three-pronged tech solution:
1. The litcum, an item that vacuums pollution out of the sea
2. The litterscoop, an item that sifts the sand to find buried plastic and
3. The litterbot, a robot that has cameras, is able to move on the sand and collect rubbish
We are seeking funding to help build these technologies.
