What is a Seabin, and why do we want one anyway?

  • A seabin is a type of bin that is on the side of a marina and as it floats it collects rubbish from the area. When the rubbish goes into the bin and is collected while the water flows through and gets pumped back into the ocean.
  • We need this bin so that the ocean wildlife can be protected from rubbish such as straws, plastic bags, coffee cups and much,much more. If not stopped many more animals will die.
