Very cool initiative from HSBC Hong Kong to build and operate 4 solar powered catamarans to clean up trash in the harbor. Assembled in Tsing Yi shipyard.
See website to watch the nice videos:

Did you know that there are over 5 trillion pieces of plastic floating in our oceans? 1 The microplastic levels in Hong Kong's waterways are particularly worrying - as high as 5,500 pieces per square metre, which is 40% higher than the international average. 2 The HSBC Clean Waterways Programme is helping to address that.
Thanks to Tasnia Ishrar Rhaman for the link. Very cool.
