Your doing a double take on the title . . . I know you are. Aren’t we supposed to keep plastic out of the ocean?
Well I got an interesting e-mail the other day. A company was asking makers for help in making an artificial reef to put in a specific location. A little research and looking at the corporate endorsers (corporate doesn’t just mean business’ mmmkay) and it looks like a good cause.
It will be made of PLA plastic (instead of petroleum based, it’s plant based. Over 1,000 3D printed parts will make up this artificial reef. This is my 3"x3"x3" piece of helping establish a coral reef.
Really no different than sinking a ship (from a navy ship to littler ships they do this with). Except this one they can actually move into an exact position that they want it in instead of sinking and hoping it goes right were they want it.
