The SeaBin

The SeaBin is exciting project for Sumi Saves Wildlife. Developed by Pete Ceglinski and his team, the SeaBin is a very ecological solution to waste in Marinas and Ports. It is a floating garbage bin that is designed to collect waste in the water. SSW has decided to make this our goal. Providing BC's first ever SeaBin and Canada's second to the Sea to Sky.

The SeaBin works by sucking water in from the surface and pushing it through the catch bag inside the SeaBin. Water is then pumped back out leaving the debris and litter in the catch bag. It also has the potential to collect oils and micro-plastics up to 2mm.  The catch bag can hold up to 20 kg. The SeaBin is estimated to catch 1.4 tons of rubbish a year. The actual unit is made out of recycled plastic and the total amount of rubbish every SeaBin in the world has caught is 114,916 kg.

The SeaBin costs 7,000 CAD not including tax and shipping. 

The Seabin is a great project for SSW to pursue. We are looking forward to a continuing along this dream. We hope that everyone will be with us along this path.

About Us

Sumi Martin


Sumi is a 10 year old Black Labrador. He has lived his entire life in ski resorts. Playing the snow and utterly loving the outdoors. He loves swimming, more than you can imagine. He's jumped out of a car once because he smelt water. He collects rocks from river beds and lakes, with his many broken teeth. He is a goofball that our whole family loves, and every stranger he meets. We cannot imagine a life where Sumi is not bouncing through the snow or rolling in the green grass. So please help us make sure that every animal gets to experience the environment like Sumi has.

Neve Martin


I'm a teenager that lives in Whistler,BC. I am committed to a large variety of outdoor sports. Like skiing, soccer, swimming, mountain biking and running. All my life I've mainly lived outdoors. I heard stories of garbage island and the Arctic melting. I was sick of sitting around and relying on other people to do something. I finally decided to develop SSW to benefit the environment and make a change. With all the support from my family and friends I am sure that I can make a change.
