USA Today reports on the upcoming voyage of Plastiki, a 60-foot catamaran made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles.
According to the USA Today story, Plastiki took two years to create and is set for a 11,000-mile next month across the Pacific from San Francisco to Sydney.
Plastiki was created by David de Rothschild, who wants to raise awareness of the problem that plastic waste causes for the world’s oceans.
USA Today also features video of Rothschild explaining the design and construction of Plastiki.
