Sailing to Hawaii on a raft made of 15000 plastic bottles. Environmentalists with guts.

raft made of plastic bottles

Not content to sit back and talk about the issue of plastics polution in the Ocean, Marcus Eriksen and Joel Paschal are sailing from Long Beach to Hawaii on the “JUNK” a raft that floats on pontoons made of plastic bottles.

Apparently 10000 pounds of plastic are added to the ocean from the city of Los Angeles each day. The 15000 bottles in the JUNK weigh only 350 pounds.
