GREAT PACIFIC GARBAGE PATCH
In the Pacific Ocean, there is a territory as large as 3 times the size of France,
of cumulated garbage, brought in by currents and tides. This is not the only garbage infested area in the World's Oceans, but it is one of the largest.
This is a major environmental issue for life on Earth.
Marine Life Affected
1 million seabirds and 100 000 sea mammals
are affected every year.
Abandoned fishing lines, fishing nets
and equipment can ensnare and drown
dolphins, porpoises and whales.
Human Life Affected
70 % of deep sea fish have eaten plastic.
55 % of fish species we eat are found with microplastics
in their gastrointestinal tract.

Gaia First + GPGP Project
The Gaia First "Great Pacific Garbage Patch" (GPGP) project
has an approach and a solution to the problem.
Gaia First will finance the construction of a boat
capable of collecting the waste from this garbage patch
and transforming it into green energy that will in turn be reused
to aliment the boat clean up itself in a self-sustaining system.
This system will be so powerful and continuous that one boat, built with a 25 tonnes per day conversion system, will reduce by at least 50% the size and volume of the GPGP in only 5 years!
This activity will be geolocalised and streamed online 24/7 on social media and internet platforms, so that changes can be seen, and everyone can feel involved
with what they have helped to achieve.
Be a part of this change and help GAIA FIRST
fix the damage we have done to the World.
all floating waste from garbage patches in the oceans
and recycle the waste
into green energy with
the green energy produced to aliment the boat
24/7 until the oceans
We have teamed up with experts in confirmed military-grade technology able to convert all plastic types to their primary elements and basic gases, such as Oxygen (O2), Hydrogen (H2) and Methane (CH4) through a system of advanced gasification.
Not only will this system have no emissions to the environment, but the gas production will be reused for the alimentation of the system itself, following a circular flow of energy.
This will allow the boat to remain in the area concerned, to collect, convert and use the green energy produced in order to further eliminate and reduce the garbage patch.
Once an initial part of the total budget required is collected, the designing and architectural phase will be launched.
The production phase of the boat will follow.
Given full availability of the requested funds, to get from the launch of the project to the on-site Garbage Patch reduction will take 24 - 36 months.
The system used will be designed
so that it may also collect and treat
eventual oil spills and other environmental pollutants.
