Mission Control - Plastiki Part I

Mission Control - Plastiki Part I: "With a rise in attention to the 'Garbage Patch, ' also known as The North Pacific Gyre, The Plastiki is setting sail during the perfect storm. A product of brainchild David de Rothschild principal at Adventure Ecology, the Plastiki is a sea craft made from almost entirely from reclaimed, post-consumer and soda bottles with reinforced PET. It will set sail at the end of 2009 with a crew of six scientist and explorers, departing from San Francico bay and navigating over 100 days in the Pacific Ocean through regions that are environmentally threatened, finishing their journey in Sydney."
