Making history in Alameda

Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate The Ocean Cleanup Project. The group is about to launch its first system from Alameda this Saturday, Sept. 8. Boyan Slat and his research and development team have developed a system to clean the oceans of the trash which has had a negative impact on our planet’s environmental health. This massive project, located at Alameda Point, will attempt to clean up and rid the ocean of plastic, beginning with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. 

We are so lucky to have this project in our city. Alamedans may contribute to this project by making donations on the website theoceancleanup.com/system001. This is indeed a worthwhile project to contribute to, for the future of our planet.
