We recently finished construction of our operational base in Puerto Barrios, Guatemala. The crew has completed numerous scouting trips to better understand the terrain and how and where plastic accumulates. As we identify these heavy impact zones, we can develop a detailed cleanup strategy to maximize the effectiveness of our cleanup missions in and around Puerto Barrios.
We want to bring you along on every cleanup mission and show you just what it takes to clean the ocean, rivers, and coastlines of Guatemala. However, we’re still in the process of becoming fully operational. In these photos, the 4ocean Guatemala crew is scouting heavy impact zones, testing equipment in different locations, and laying the groundwork for an optimized cleaning strategy.
