Our Featured Non-Profit

While we are passionate about technology here at Unraid, we are also keenly aware of the many waste problems that our modern global economies produce. There are currently 5 enormous garbage patches that have formed in our world’s oceans and we want to support the efforts in getting these cleaned up.

The Ocean Cleanup's mission is this:


The Ocean Cleanup is designing and developing the first feasible method to rid the world’s oceans of plastic and garbage. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the ocean. A significant percentage of this plastic drifts into large systems of circulating ocean currents, also known as gyres. Once trapped in a gyre, the plastic will break down into microplastics and become increasingly easier to mistake for food by sea life.

The Ocean Cleanup is developing a passive collection system, moving with the currents - just like the plastic - to catch it. The system consists of a 600-meter-long floater that sits at the surface of the water and a tapered 3-meter-deep skirt attached below. The floater provides buoyancy to the system and prevents plastic from flowing over it, while the skirt stops debris from escaping underneath. As the system moves through the water, the plastic continues to collect within the boundaries of the U-shaped system. 

By deploying a fleet of systems, The Ocean Cleanup has estimated to be able to remove 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years’ time. The concentrated plastic will be brought back to shore for recycling and sold to B2C companies. The revenue gained will help fund the cleanup expansion to the other four ocean gyres. More info on this huge undertaking is here.

"For society to progress, we should not only move forward but all clean up after ourselves."

- Boyan Slat, CEO & Founder of The Ocean Cleanup
