The couple that recycles ocean plastic into cost-effective prosthetic limbs for the needy

Meet the incredible couple that is tackling two global problems with one brilliant solution!

Chris Moriarity and his wife Laura run a charity called the Million Waves Project under which they use ocean plastic and convert it into 3-D printed prosthetic limbs for needy people around the globe.

Since the materials used are super cheap, each prosthetic costs just $45, which the couple funds through donations, sponsorships, and selling keychains on the charity’s website.

Currently, the Moriaritys prepare the plastic by cutting it up by hand and feeding it into a paper shredder, and then a 3-D printer. After that, they use an app to connect with people who need prosthetics so they can design the gadget specifically to their measurements.
