Plastiki – A Boat Made From Recycled Plastic Sets Out To Help Protect Oceans

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.

    we were there for the launch of the plastiki! it was very cool to see it in person…we were also really hyped up to interview them on their vertical garden, from which they will enjoy kale and leafy greens of all kinds over their voyage. if you're interested we uploaded it here:

    it really gets your mind going on what is possible for not just the future of pollution, but the future of gardening!
