Land Rover BAR install the UK's first ‘Seabin’

Seabin The Seabin collects floating debris and micro plastics

The UK’s first Seabin has been installed on the Land Rover BAR team’s pontoon in Portsmouth.

Seabin’s automated rubbish collection device gathers floating debris and micro plastics down to 2mm in diameter and has the capability to collect 83,000 plastic shopping bags or 20,000 plastic bottles per year.

“The collaboration with Seabin Pty forms part of the team's on-going drive to become the most sustainable sports team in the world,” explained Jo Grindley, Land Rover BAR CMO/ CCO.

The Land Rover BAR team expects its partnership with Seabin to enable it to remove half a tonne of debris from the waters around The Camber each year, as-well as removing pollutants such as oils and detergents.

Land Rover BAR was one of the early supporters during the initial Crowdfunding campaign that made the Seabin project possible and the UK’s model is also the world's first commercial unit to be installed.

The Land Rover BAR team is committed to protecting its 'pitch' and reducing environmental footprint by working with sustainably partner, 11th Hour Racing and suppliers to identify and communicate new solutions to deliver further positive change.
