Ocean Clean Up Pioneer Peeters looks Forward to Reviewing the World's
Best Ideas

The Endowment
for Clean Oceans
(ECO) announced Willemijn Peeters, Ocean Ambassador
of the Netherlands and the Founding Director of Searious
Business
has joined ECO's Entrepreneur Committee that will vet
contestants' plans to remove macro and micro plastics from the world's
oceans.

"I am working to solve the problem of what to do with the plastic once
it is removed from the ocean, by helping to create a market for plastic
recovered from the ocean," said Peeters. "Just like we need to end the
use of single use plastic, we need to replace the manufacture of virgin
plastic and replace it with recycled plastics, and as much as possible
needs to be plastic recovered from the ocean."
