The folks behind the Billion Oyster Project are trying to revive New York’s waterways by recycling shells from partnering restaurants and getting them back in the water to build oyster reefs. A single oyster can filter about 30 to 50 gallons of water every day. The goal: To add a billion oysters to the water by 2035. So far, they’ve restored 1.05 acres of reefs and count 11.5 million newly grown oysters. #Sustainability
