Kid’s Movie: All The Way to the Ocean

Back when I owned a store I had the distinct pleasure of working with Joel Harper number of times while promoting his wonderful book called All The Way to the Ocean  which you can purchase on Amazon here.

Well his wonderful book has recently been turned into a movie, and you can preorder it now for $4.99. Check out the trailer below.  Way to go Joel!!!

Solution for the Plastic Garbage in the Ocean!

This young man’s idea is such a very exciting solution for the heaps of plastic garbage that are circulating in the ocean!  It is also an excellent illustration of one of my favorite TED talks about the concept of “frugal innovation” which in a nutshell means to “use that which is in ample supply to create more of that which is in short supply.” In this case the ocean currents are in ample supply to provide the power needed to clean-up the ocean which is in short supply. Other solutions to the 5 gyres problem have been calculated at solving the problem in thousands of years. This new idea could potentially clean-up the ocean in as little as 5-years.  HOLY MOLY Batman, that’s a heck of a lot faster than THOUSANDS of years. How’s that for good news???!!!! I think I’m going to go crack open a bottle of wine and celebrate.
