We are now, by means of beach clean-up activities, helping promotion of the crowdfunding project of this ocean cleaning drone specialized in fishing ports.
This drone is in the development process by Azure Alliance, a Taiwanese non-profit organization.
In order to attack the plastic pollution issue especially in heavily polluted fishing ports, they spent 3 years to develop the prototype that successfully collected 528 kg of floating plastics in Keelung, Taiwan.
Now the prototype is evolving to the 2nd generation and therefore the crowdfunding project is under process!
One of the biggest keys in succeeding in crowdfunding projects is marketing.
The more people know about the project, the better success rate it can have.
As the project’s sponsors can receive gifts exclusively designed by one of our co-founders, a.k.a. Brain Ocean Studio, we decided to help the project further by means of coastal clean up events.
No matter how many people can join the events after all, the event pages are exposed to the public, especially of the right target audience.
We have planned 2 clean up events and today was the first one of them.
Today’s spot was a seaside park in Tainan, a city in southern Taiwan.
The park is a great spot to see the sunset, so lamentably we saw an unlimited amount of littered cigarettes…
Due to the oyster farm nearby, we also saw some abandoned equipment made of styrofoam.
As always, we met a lot of cool people, such as a university professor who brought his students (and they regularly clean the area!), a dad who brought his daughter and his son, a girl who travelled more than 300 km just for the event…!
Hope we all can support the development project of the cleaning drone!
