Imagine if there were a world water quality index that provides real-time measures of water pollution and plastics – just like the World Air Quality Index?

Individuals can purchase and set up their own easy-to-use GAIA Air Quality Monitoring Stations – for as low as US$200 for the most recommended A12 station.

This kind of data for the marine environment would be very cool and very useful at least coastal areas where open water swimmers train, but also for humanity to understand the extent of global pollution and its effects on the health and wellness of living beings.
