Each year, 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in our seas and oceans. That is a fact which a lot of people did not know but is shocking for everybody. Contracorriente was born in order to spotlight the problem: a quarterly newspaper with desire to give voice to all those people, associations and / or organizations that are devoted to find the solution to clean our seas and oceans from plastics.
This first issue is dedicated to Boyan Slat, a young man who has attracted attention of great scientists and world politicians with his invention of a system for concentrating and catching plastic debris. If it shows to be effective, it will manage to remove all the plastic from the sea, according to Slat, in only 10 years.
