"A water-loving Floridian, Carlos Macias got tired of seeing all the trash floating around in the ocean and bays. So he combined his favorite hobby with an environmental mission, creating a special net to dangle from his stand-up paddleboard. In a little more than a year, Macias and his device have scooped more than a ton of trash from the water.
Macias, 58, calls his device the Environet. It's a mesh net that connects along the fin of a paddleboard. Macias then ties a recyclable container to the front of the paddleboard to hold the trash the net scoops up."
