Plastiki sets sail.

I wrote about the amazing David de Rothschild and his wonderful Plastiki made from plastic bottles and recycled materials last year.  It is sailing across the world to raise awareness about ocean pollution and inspire rethinking about waste.

The Plastiki set sail from San Francisco this weekend, and will reach Sydney in 100 days. See more here Plastiki  and here Plastiki.

The Plastiki has solar power, a vertical vegetable garden and is fully recyclable at the end of its journey. It is put together with a glue made from cashew nuts and sugar.

Brilliant innovation with an adventurous spirit.

Wishing them all a safe, happy and successful voyage, and we all look forward to welcoming them to Sydney later this year.
