#4 About cleaning up plastic in the oceans

The illustration on the board shows the journey of floating buoys transported by ocean currents.

Plastic in our oceans kills 1.5 million seabirds, whales, fish and turtles every year. But microplastic also poses a risk to our own health. How do we clean up the plastic as efficiently as possible? To answer this question, oceanographers and climate scientists from Utrecht University are conducting research into the currents of the oceans and how they transport plastic waste. The goal is to use this knowledge to be the first to make the Galapagos Islands plastic-free and ultimately to clean up the oceans step by step.

Our university is a great treasure chest full of beautiful stories. Every plate and cup from the Science x Porcelain collection tells such a story. The scientific patterns on the porcelain are the result of leading research and at the same time a decorative element.

The porcelain was made by Cor Unum, a ceramic studio in 's-Hertogenbosch where beautiful ceramics are made with great passion and craftsmanship. Cor Unum works with a team of professionals, students, designers, volunteers and people with distance to the labor market.
