Ultimate Sand Sifter Challenge

Nobody likes the feeling of hard plastic poking them in the back—or elsewhere—when they lie down at the beach, but it’s more of a problem than just that. Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii wants to get the public involved in cleaning up microplastic and marine debris with the first annual Ultimate Sand Sifter Challenge, in which participants are asked to design, and eventually build, devices that will help us make our coastlines spotless. There’s a $300 cap, but a $2,500 prize on the line, so get siftin’! 

Designs due September 26, sustainablecoastlineshawaii.org
