Though we are all familiar with garbage on the streets, we know far less about trash in the sea. But Barthelemy was convinced that garbage bins would work just as well on the sea—where garbage is being thrown overboard at a rate 634,000 kg per second—as on land.

Barthélemy has devoted himself to defending clean seas. Despite health problems, he remained under the scorching heat for hours to respond to our battery of questions. Watching the sun set over the bay of Saint Raphael, we were all convinced of the usefulness of Barthélemy’s work to preserve the beauty of the deep blue sea.

Floating trash bins to save our seas

2 February 2016
In 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans. That’s according to the latest report from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, released at the World Economic Forum in Davos in late January 2016. To stem this global catastrophe, our pioneer Barthélémy Dominici decided to take action in his own backyard, installing trash collectors along the Mediterranean coast.
