Boat made from 12,500 plastic bottles to sail across Pacific
The Plastiki is a boat that is held afloat by 12,500 plastic 2-liter bottles. Built by Adventure Ecology and captained by David de Rothschild, the boat will travel 7,500 miles from San Francisco to Sydney. Its mission is to create awareness about the vast amounts of plastic that get thrown into landfill or end up in the oceans.
In addition to the wind power, the Plastiki will also be propelled by crew members bicycling along. Rain will be caught to provide water and sprouts will be grown in a vertical garden.
