“Funds raised from this event will help us create interpretive carts where we can show people the effects of plastic,” said Brenda Walkenhorst, the director the Audubon Nature Institute’s Education Projects.

No more worrying about the cleanliness of water and algae growth in your aquarium,” said Tumanyan.

Also going by the name Bluenero, the aquarium comes in sizes of 16 gallons, 26 gallons, and 36 gallons, and there’s some talk of manufacturing a mini version in just 8 gallons but that still seems up in the air.
