Sea Chair Made On The Sea From Marine PlaaticYou’ve probably heard of the massive ocean masses of plastic that are growing around the planet.  Well we stumbled upon this great short film about Studio Swine who collects and processes the marine plastic into a stool at sea.

Here’s the film’s summary from the producer:

Short film about collecting plastic to make a chair on a fishing boat at sea.

Since the discovery of the Pacific Garbage Patch in 1997, which is predicted to measure twice the size of Texas, five more have been found across the world’s oceans with the Atlantic gyre predicted to be even larger. This plastic takes thousands of years to degrade, remaining in the environment to be broken up into ever smaller fragments by ocean currents.

The gyre stretches from the coastlines of California to the shores of Japan. Recent studies have estimated 46,000 pieces of plastic per square kilometer of the world’s oceans. The number of plastic pieces in the Pacific Ocean has tripled in the last ten years and the size of the accumulation is set to double in the next ten.

Sea Chair is made entirely from plastic recovered from our oceans. Together with local fishermen, Studio Swine collects and processes the marine plastic into a stool at sea.
