Topic: Reduce pollution in bodies of water
Project: Trash collector 2.0
We wanted to make something that helped the environment and made it easier to lower the amount of pollution and trash thrown into rivers and lakes, destroying habitats and taking the lives of innocent animals. Trash collector 2.0 helps reduce the amount of pollution thrown into rivers and lakes by imitating a black hole.
This machines swallows' bottles and pieces of rubbish floating around the body of water it is put in, and contains them in a large net tied through our easy to use holes placed in our outside rim (Skinny brown rim) Unfortunately we were not able to find a small enough net for our miniature size creation. In some pictures you are observing a flipped version of our design. Which means you would be looking at our invention under the water (The section with the holes). If you watch Trash Collector 2.0 from the bottom of the grid, that’s what it would look like at the top of the water, or how it’s supposed to be.
When Trash Collector 2.0 is to capacity with trash, basically untie the net from the wholes and separate trash for recycling! We hope this can reduce the amount of materials used to make a basic rim for a net, and help our beloved environment thrive through our mistakes
