What problem is this Sparkus Project tackling? What's this solution?
Fundamental Problem: There is SO MUCH marine debirs (trash) in our oceans and it's killing our costal ecosystems.
What's your "theory of change?"
We believe that the more people are aware of the problem, are spreading awareness and devoting time and energy to finding a solution, the more likely we are to actually save our marine ecosystems.
