Boat made of plastic bottles sets sail across Pacific


Plastic Boat

A boat made of 12,000 plastic bottles has set sail on a voyage from San Francisco to Sydney to spread awareness about pollution in the world’s oceans.

Gotta love the critics:
“Critics say the expedition only perpetuates the belief that it is acceptable to use plastic as long as people recycle it, rather than encouraging people to cut down on its use entirely.
They also point out that if the Plastiki were to break apart mid-journey, it would dump thousands of bottles directly into the ocean”

Pedantic much?:P
