Amazing!! Brilliant!! Boyan has come up with a fantastic idea for getting plastic out of the ocean's. Here's to hoping that when the prototype is launched in June that it proves to be successful!
Thanks Mari

Low cost anything that works should be encouraged--to save what's left of the ocean--the entire planet and all living. Thanks Mari. Noted with hope.

Notice all the ''nay-sayers'' calling him ''naive?" It's soooo easy to say negative things. And the young man just keeps on dreaming!
