Da Tumbler: Tumbling device helps to remove microplastics from Hawaii beaches

A beach cleaning tumbler machine that helps to remove microplastics from the sand is being used on beaches around Oahu, Hawaii.

The simple device, known as “Da Tumbler”, spins sand and debris inside of a metal grate, catching debris and allowing clean sand to fall through.

Ken G Kosada, who built the device, said: “I built these to clean our beaches in Hawaii but more so, as an education tool to start the conversation about plastic pollution.”

Da Tumbler’s inventor Ken G Kosada is working with organisations such as Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii to produce more tumblers and host community cleanups.
