Wärtsilä is bringing two new Seabin floating rubbish bins to Finland this summer. The bins need good homes, where they are needed and where they will be looked after so that they can continue to their work for cleaner waters for years to come.
That’s why Wärtsilä is opening a competition for all Finnish companies, associations and other communities, to have the chance to get a Seabin.
Because educating the public on the health of our waters and ocean plastics is an important part of the Seabin-project, Wärtsilä additionally wishes that the winning community uses the Seabin as a way of informing the local kids, youngsters and other people on the subject. The Seabin is an opportunity to awaken interest and to activate people to think about the future of the seas.
Applications are accepted until the end of May and winners and locations of the two Seabins will be published in the beginning of June.
The Seabin is a floating trash can for water, which can be placed in marinas and harbours, where it collects litter on the water’s surface. Surface water is pumped through the Seabin’s catch bag, leaving rubbish in the bag from where it is disposed of properly.
