10. No more plastic problems
Boyan Slat, a 19-year-old genius, has been developing a unique solution to get rid of plastic that has infested our oceans. At such a tender age he has already come up with a brilliant idea to use natural currents of the ocean to collect the garbage and later recycle it. Plastic is one of those things that has become an inseparable part of our lives, yet it is also true that it has caused one of the biggest environmental issues of modern days.
Boyan Slat’s ‘Ocean Cleanup’ offers a feasible solution to this problem and requires $43 million per year. While this sum of money can seem overwhelming, it is much cheaper than any other project dealing with plastic.
