Finalist of the Global Children's Design-a-thon 2019, Switzerland

This team designed a mobile device that can travel on land or water and sucks up plastic waste. Special fans remove any bad chemicals. Inside the vacuum there is a small farm with fungi and worms that will eat the plastic. The waste the fungi and worms produce is edible and can be turned into food for animals or humans.
