Aquagoat is a new, sustainable way to clean ocean plastics. But is it really as effective as it claims to be? We investigate.
With over 8 million tons of plastic entering the ocean every year, it’s no surprise that companies are looking for new and innovative ways to clean up the mess. Enter Aquagoat, a new company that claims to have developed a sustainable way to remove ocean plastics using goats.
Aquagoat’s process is simple: they place goats on boats and send them out into the ocean to eat plastic. The goats then digest the plastic and excrete it as pellets, which are collected and used to create new products.
The idea is that by eating the plastic, the goats will help to clean up the ocean while also providing a sustainable source of food for Aquagoat’s customers. And, because the pellets are made from recycled plastic, they are said to be much better for the environment than traditional plastic products.
So, does it work?
Well, according to Aquagoat’s website, their process is “highly effective” and has been proven to remove up to 98% of ocean plastic. They also claim that their pellets are made from 100% recycled plastic and are completely biodegradable.
However, there are some skeptics. Some experts have questioned the effectiveness of the Aquagoat process, saying that it’s unlikely that the goats can eat enough plastic to make a significant dent in the ocean’s plastic problem. Others have raised concerns about the sustainability of the Aquagoat business model, pointing out that it relies heavily on plastic pellets, which are not yet widely available.
What’s the verdict?
At this point, it’s hard to say for sure. Aquagoat is a new company with a novel idea, and they have not yet been independently verified. However, if their process is as effective as they claim, then it could be a valuable tool in the fight against ocean plastic. only time will tell.
