Australian surfer, father, and clean ocean advocate Pete Ceglinski is the CEO and Co-Founder of the Seabin Project. Seabin, a device designed to reduce, and ultimately eliminate pollution in our oceans, acts as a trash can for our waters and has the ability to remove microplastics, microfibers, plastic bags, bottles, cigarette butts, and more. Along with the development of the Seabin Project as a business, Pete is heavily involved in the technical design and development of the products. Since he co-founded the invention in 2015 there have been Seabins installed in over 40 countries, resulting in a total of 1.95 tons of waste extracted from our oceans every day.   Want to start your own cause-based podcast?
