Challenge

China owns about 32000 kilometers coastline, the mainland coastline is about 18000 km, and a conservative estimate of the coastline that get regularly cleaned now known is only 629 km, that is to say, only 3.49% of the beach is cleaned, and the rest of the 96.51% we seldom clean, of which a large part of the beach we even know nothing about. What is the situation of China's distribution of marine litter? What exactly is the litter occupying our city and even our beaches?

Solution

Survey on the beach in China is to understand the distribution of litter on the beach, collect the litter data, locating the source of marine litter, can help with policy making, consumer behavior directing, commercial product design, etc.

Long-Term Impact

The project will contribute to reduction of marine litter, leading a more eco-friendly lifestyle, return a clean beach, and keep the balance of marine ecology.
