Wilbert The Whale
After reading that the River Tame in Greater Manchester has the largest recorded concentration of micro plastics in a river in the world I came up with the concept for Wilbert. Wilbert is a large whale shaped buoy that filters the water for micro plastics, spouts water, makes whale noises and is powered by solar energy. I have created Wilbert to not only filter the water for plastics, but also simultaneously educate the public about the plastic pollution problem.
