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

butters 99 : scientists: *working for 30 years on how to clean up the ocean* 22y rold: "we get a big ol pipe" scientists: omg no way :O

JOHN DAVIS : If we stopped making our plastics from crude oil and used vegetable oil, we could produce biodegradable plastic.

JEFFGUITAR : Man this is the first respectable thing that has been on my feed for weeks. Now that's a kid i respect. Maybe these twatty little rappers im seeing can get inspired by this and start writing meaningful lyrics. I mean cmon. Lil pump etc.. Look at your following !! Do the world some justice and make your tunes up about the environment and your shit government. Here is your chance to highlight certain issues to your young following and for the non rap fans🍻

tony singh : All of a sudden the world is full of wunderkinds, they're building satellites, corporations, programming from the womb. Either there has been some coincidental genetic mutation in our time or the internet now acts as the worlds best PR guy. I suspect it's the latter, many of these guys and gals are not as smart as you think. But hey, everybody loves a fairy tale. 92% of plastic in the ocean is microplastic and cannot be caught by the system he describes. Repainting a wall will NOT stop the guy with spray can. Why not stop dumping it into the sea in the first place, this ocean cleanup could lead to a moral hazard.

Cobaltbuddy89 : Those were some tiny waves they tested on. Wait until a storm hits and the waves toss the trash right over that little tube. also what does a ship do? drive over it?

Hyena Studios : Just build a wall

James Crud : I peed in the ocean... :-(

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

Deadly Thang : So what happens if a boat runs over it?

Addyraddy9 : how many fish has that pipe swallowed yet

greenbottle500 : If you want to clean up the Earth you can start by burning San Fransicso

peter j : Bet his dad is rich.

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?

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

akaJRob : Ok so where’s the plastic from the ocean gonna go now ? I say we just send trash to space

Joseph Murphy : It won't work, over 90% of the garbage in the patch is deep underwater not at the surface. He won't be making even a dent. A bunch of people who don't understand how the patch works just wasted their money because they heard "Green".

blakemerc sith : I have a better way to keep the oceans clean and it free don't pollute

Matjaž Bajt : I don't see this making much of a difference in sea pollution but I guess some difference is better than none.

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.
