Endowment for Clean Oceans Announces Macreburs CEO Toby McCartney Membership on ECOs Entrepreneur Committee

The Endowment
for Clean Oceans is announces that innovator and Entrepreneur Toby
McCartney, CEO of Macrebur,
is a member of the Entrepreneur’s Judges Committee for our contest to
award $1 million for the best technology or plan to remove macro and
micro plastics from the ocean.

McCartney began Macrebur to re-use waste and single use plastic. He
developed the technology to use it in asphalt, which makes roads
stronger and last six times longer. This video
explains how Macrebur’s technology works and where it is being used now.

“We at Macrebur have a productive and safe reuse of the waste and single
use macro and micro plastics that will be recovered from our oceans by
the technology or plan that wins ECO’s first $1 million prize,” said

“Since ECO has an on-going need for a high-volume of waste and
single-use plastics, it makes McCartney a great fit. Plus, much of
Macrebur’s initial public exposure and funding came from winning Sir
Branson’s the 2016 Virgin Mobile Innovator Start Up Contest,” said ECO
Founder Daniel Perrin. “McCartney knows first-hand about innovation
contests and is another reason ECO chose McCartney.”

“I know first-hand the great things that can come from recognizing and
funding true innovation to solve our global waste plastics problem,”
said McCartney. “I’m looking forward to reviewing the innovative
solutions from all over the world.”

About Endowment for Clean Oceans

Endowment for Clean Oceans is now raising the funds for two
contests, one which is for a $1 million prize for the best idea or
technology to remove the macro and micro pieces of plastic from the
ocean. The second contest is for $5 million to find a truly
biodegradable and economically viable replacement for the five most
commonly used plastics. Documentaries will be made of both contests so
viewers can see the ideas and technology presented and how and why the
judges picked the winners.
