Ocean fertilizers, garbage, sewage, toxic chemicals, and more.

Ocean pollution all started due to the dumping of trash into our waters. It’s not only our fault but also can be blamed on natural disasters. Ocean pollution can kill animals and overall harm them. Eighty percent of the pollution that then goes to the marine environment comes from the land. From plastic bags, pesticides, sewage, and more, most of the waste we produce on land over time reaches the Earth’s oceans. Either through intentional dumping or from run-off through drains and rivers. There are multiple forms of ocean pollution, including, oil, fertilizers, garbage, sewage, toxic chemicals, and more. Though, the biggest trigger to this is garbage. A majority of our garbage makes its way to the ocean. Plastic bags, balloons, glass from bottles, are usually not thrown away correctly. So almost everything we throw away can reach the sea. There is so much garbage in the ocean, that it has formed a patch. This patch is called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.  The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a body of marine waste in the North Pacific Ocean. Marine waste is a litter that ends up in oceans, seas, and other large bodies of water. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch spans waters from the West Coast of North America to Japan. Major contributors to ocean pollution start from the pollution on our land.  When large areas of land are plowed, the uncovered soil can erode during rainstorms. A lot of this runoff drifts to the sea, carrying with it farm fertilizers and pesticides. Some Long-term effects that ocean pollution can cause to marine life include reproductive system failure, behavioral changes, cancer, and death. Alongside, another reason why we should end ocean pollution is because the oceans are the largest ecosystems on Earth. Meaning they are the Earth’s largest life support systems. To survive, we all need healthy oceans. Oceans create half of the oxygen we breathe. Living oceans take in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and lower the impact of climate change. Overall all of this information states a majority of the reasons why we need to put a stop to ocean pollution. But how? What would it be like to have barely any trash in our oceans? My solution could not only save the lives of some marine life and make the worlds air purer, but it can provide jobs for the unemployed! My solution is simple and feasible, relating to money and logic. First off, as you know the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is constantly moving in an ellipse formation, going past California and Japan. My solution is somewhat similar to weighted fishing nets. In the sense that I have 1 mile long nets, that stretch as deep as the ocean floor. They will have weights in the bottom to stick in place, yet at the same time, it will be occupied with buoys at the top to make it float. This invention will constantly trap trash within its surroundings. Who’s going to take the trash? That’s where my company begins. Thanks to President Donald Trump, our unemployment rate is slightly decreasing. Yet nationally there are still over 200 million people unemployed! My company opens up to those without education and education. All your doing is picking up trash. I plan to set headquarters on the east coast of Japan and in the west coast of California. My company, as an assumption will hire a substantial amount of people. I’m talking about 5,000 people in total. 2,500 will work in the California headquarters, as for the headquarters in Japan, alongside 2,500 people will work there. This might not seem like a lot, but for a beginning company, it’s a substantial amount, for later on depending on progression I will offer more jobs. People, depending on overall experience and skill, can work as a boat driver or a trash picker. As I set up multiple of my nets in different places within the ellipse, people depending on which HQ they work at, will go out in large boats and stop by the nets picking up all the trash and disposing it within the boat’s garbage pail. They will constantly go back and forth depending on the amount of trash already stored within the boat. Eventually, with my invention, we are talking about a brighter future for us humans and marine life. Overall, some problems that I might come through are that relating to my invention. If any natural disaster occurs such as a hurricane (depending on the extremities) my net can shift locations and get out of place. This causing me to bring them back into place. But, overall I believe nothing else can really form a defect in my idea, for the buoys can’t be popped or messed with and the net has small little holes so technically no microplastics or trash can escape.  Thank You
