While most have heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, few know about the smaller, but equally problematic North Atlantic Gyre. To help raise awareness about the issue and remove plastic from our shores and oceans, Studio Swine has launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for a voyage to the North Atlantic. The London-based design studio made waves previously with their ingenious Sea Chair made from plastic ocean waste, and they plan to make more Sea Chairs on their North Atlantic journey by feeding collected plastic waste into a solar-powered 3D printer. Support their journey by donating to their Kickstarter!
