A friendship to fight against global pollution
Two italian friends, Fabio and Mauro, one based in London and the other one from New York, joined forces to fight against plastic pollution in the oceans coming from rivers. Fabio came up with the idea of the Blue Barriers during a research project on waste management in Jakarta, Indonesia.
He noted the huge amount of debris that floated on the Ciliwung River, which flows through the Indonesian capital.
“All the waste that ends up in the sea, ruins the beaches, damages the environment, affects tourism and causes serious problems to local communities.
