EDIT
David de Rothschild: The Plastiki Expedition
AIRED:
The Plastiki is no average boat. It is made up of 12,500 plastic bottles salvaged from the garbage bins of San Francisco. Onboard there are solar panels, wind turbines and a hydroponic vertical garden.On July 26, 2010, the Plastiki docked safely in Sydney Harbor, after a 129-day voyage from San Francisco. Fresh off the boat, eco-explorer David de Rothschild sat down with Sally Dominguez at Sydney Ideas, to talk about his voyage aboard the Plastiki, how the unique boat was built and why plastics pose a major threat to our oceans.moreless
