Plastiki crosses Pacific Answered

Plastiki, the boat made with 12,500 plastic bottles, has successfully sailed across the Pacific Ocean. The journey started in San Francisco and has ended in Sydney after 130 days and 8,000 miles on the water. The goal was to raise awareness about the problem of plastics in the oceans, such as the Pacific Garbage Patch. Congratulations to David de Rothschild and the rest of the crew.

Still, fewer people would want to attempt smelling the rose if it was called "putrid stomach contents". . .
