Taikamuna : *Let's put plastic into the ocean to clean plastic from the ocean*

frank1971ification : why not just empty the ocean and fill it up with new water? my local hardware store has a water pump half price this week

fuck off : Finally somebody using money wisely than just spending it for v bucks

Just Bodewes : All the donators received a plastic bag full of plastic goodies.

Trang Hoàng : i'm not a professional on ocean trash picking 101 but this guy gave up college and started working everyday for years at an age which many people just spends their days partying themselves to death. fine, you may find a hole in his solution just watching a video of it but he deserves all the money you guys make just because he's trying to do something about it.

Ofentse Mwase Films : This won't work, the main problem is human beings, so long as they are on Earth, the ocean will remain dirty.

LeoAngel67 : $25 million in his pocket and $5 million for the actual project.

Blake P. : The pipe is made out of plastic lol😂

Werner Bruin : Don't see the floating pipe idea being very effective in during tropical storms or when ships drive over it. A better idea will be to free all the dolphins held in captivity and train them to clean it up. I need 35 mil to free the dolphins and buy baskets. Anybody want to invest in my idea?

Larkspur : Doesn't cover the deep stuff and the micro-plastics though. I expect more plastic goes in the ocean each year than we are taking out of it anyway. We need a find a way to destroy plastic and stop using it completely. Then figure a way to filter the micro-plastics out. This method will only buy some time to be honest.

Daniel Pietnik : 30M raised to clean the planet. and yesterday an asian guy bought a painting for 110.5M ...... what a joke rich people are.

Raghav Saptarsh : It's not easy like we think... Think about the micro plastic.. They in our food now... "salt" has micro plastic in it now.

katelynn s : A large majority of plastic is mainly packaging... try avoid buying packaged and single used items as much as possible... a great challenge is the no straw challenge! Try going a week without using one plastic straw.

Nicole Evans : I hate to disagree with people, but in the video it says a step closer to a cleaner planet which is only kinda true. The waste being taken out of the ocean is incredible but you have to remember the waste has to go somewhere. While the ocean clean up is going to sort through the waste and recycle it into new things, this shouldn’t be a safety net to allow people to just throw whatever they want away. If you want to help, think about what your buying and try to reduce your single use plastics!!! Recycling is good but eliminate waste such as disposable straws or utensils. Every little thing helps and remember we all live on this planet so this effects everyone in some way or another.
