The cost of eco-friendly yacht under the name “the Savior of the ocean” is estimated at 52 million dollars. It is expected that she will collect plastic, shred it and recycle with minimal atmospheric pollution. The project has no analogues.
The firm that designed the ship, said that she was inspired by the documentary series “Blue planet” produced by Bi-bi-si, narrated by legendary naturalist sir David Attenborough.
According to statistics, every year the ocean gets about 8 million tons of plastic. Humanity produces 335 million tonnes of plastic a year. That’s five times more than 50 years ago.
