David de Rothschild is making a statement and voyage with a vessel made of plastic bottles. He and his crew are constructing a 60-foot catamaran which, with exception of the metal masts, is made entirely from recycled plastic. He plans to set sail from San Francisco in April and make the 11, 000 journey to Australia to raise awareness and boost recycing of plastic bottles.

Everything will be recycylces. Event the vesssel is goint ot end up beng recycled when we finish.”
