    Plastic Bottle Boat

    The 60-foot catamaran, made from 12500 plastic bottles, completing an 11,000-mile journey across the Pacific Ocean last year. Banking heir and expedition leader David de Rothschild runs the Adventure Ecology educational organization and is the mastermind behind the Plastiki project, which, among other things, aims to change people’s perception of garbage. Today, most plastic bottles in the U.S. are not recycled. “Plastiki: Across the Pacific on Plastic: An Adventure to Save Our Oceans” is David de Rothschild’s book. David recounts the extraordinary journey of the Plastiki – it was a voyage that took de Rothschild and a five-person crew 10,000 miles from the U.S. to Australia, sailing through rarely traveled, dangerous waters, risking their lives to call attention to our fragile oceans. Their exploration included urgent study of ocean pollution, island nations threatened by rising seas, damaged coral reefs, and the acidifying ocean itself – and their discoveries are a call to action. Packed with exciting narrative, images, maps, journal entries, plans, and sketches, this is the only firsthand account of what may be the most important adventure of our time.
