Litter4Tokens has created a proprietary, award winning Mermaid Tear Catcher (MTC).
This is a circular disk in the form of a frisbee that can be used to sieve through the dry beach sand, separating organic material from nurdles and microplastics. A unique code enables the user to log their findings on the Litter4tokens website so we can trace scientific data. When not being used for beach cleaning, the MTC can be used as a frisbee, making it both an educational and fun device.
Litter4Tokens has created a proprietary, award winning Mermaid Tear Catcher (MTC). This disk sifts plastic from sand and acts as a Frisbee, making it both educational and fun! The MTC is award winning technology:
- STOMP 2019 Award from the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP)
- Stem the Tide of Plastic Waste Technology 2019 Award – UK Government Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), Common Wealth Blue Charter, and Commonwealth Litter Programme.
- Silver award at the 2020 (17th annual) International Stevie® Awards for Women in Business.
- Female Innovator of the year – Non Profit
In association with the World Nurdle Association, Litter4Tokens introduced the Mermaid Tear Catcher™ at the 2019 Ballito Pro. The Mermaid Tear Catcher™ has also been launched in the USA and UK.
Please note that we cannot guarantee colors due to the MTC being made from recycled ocean bound plastic at that time which is found.
The Mermaid Tear Catchers™ are being sold in the United states by www.seahugger.org.
