Introducing Myself: Colin Cuff

Hi, my name is Colin Cuff. I’m a Junior at La Canada High School in Southern California. I have long loved the beach and the ocean environment. One issue that routinely comes up is the pollution of our oceans. Whether that’s because of fossil fuels, or other pollutants, one that’s constantly in the news is single use plastics. Plastic bags, plastic cups, plastic anything.

The issue hits home for me in a variety of ways. Growing up, my family and I would routinely spend our weekends going to the beach. Whether it be Venice, Santa Monica, New Port, or Santa Barbara. I have always been aware of recycling and picking up trash at the beach, in order to keep it clean. Seeing plastic on the beach has always been something thats upset me and made me think. I want to make a change by bringing attention to the issue of single-use plastics and trash on the beach. Through this non-profit I will publish review articles, give my personal perspective, and go to events covering these problems. My goal is to make a change for the better of the world.

Come join me on this quest to eliminate single-use plastics!

World Oceans Day 2021

Today is World Oceans Day. Here at Save Our Pacific, our goal is to eliminate plastic pollution from the Pacific Ocean. Single-use plastic bags are a huge issue in regards to plastic pollution in our ocean. Plastic litter is horrible for the oceanic life and the ecosystems that they thrive in.

The World Oceans Day gives governments globally an opportunity to involve people in taking action to save our oceans. Around 70 percent of the oxygen that we breath here on Earth is produced by the oceans.

Our oceans are precious. There’s no way we can survive on our planet without them. So join us in protecting the most valuable resource we have.

Razer Partners With ClearBot To Increase Ocean Plastics Removal

One of my favorite gaming companies is joining up with ClearBot to help clean up our oceans. Razer’s leading engineers and designers used their tech expertise to help turn a prototype from ClearBot into a scalable, mass-market product. Their AI-Vision technology helps to identify different types of marine plastic waste.

You can check out ClearBot at their website: ClearBot.org. Razer and ClearBot made a video showing off their collaboration, watch it below!

In celebration of World Oceans Day, the two companies have a ten-year pact to create a more sustainable product for both brands. Patricia Liu, Chief of Staff at Razer had this to say:

We are extremely happy to have the opportunity to work with a startup focused on saving the environment. ClearBot’s unique AI and advanced machine learning technology will enable and empower governments and organizations around the world to broaden their sustainability efforts. We urge other innovative startups to reach out to Razer for collaboration opportunities as we strive to make the world a safer place for future generations.

It’s awesome to see a brand that I love so much for gaming, come out in support of the world’s oceans. We need more companies like this to take a step toward conservation and protection of the oceans.
