Adventurer, ecologist, and activist, David de Rothschild is the latest celebrity to appear in a series of videos plugging Prince Charles’ Rainforests Project and encouraging people to become involved. “We’re getting to a period where there’s no turning back,” he says,” and the most important thing is our ability to live on this planet.” Check out the video below.
In other news, the Plastiki Expedition has received a slick new website that let’s you take a peek at how everything will work on the vessel. Conceived by de Rothschild a few years ago, the Plastiki is a 60-foot catamaran made from reclaimed plastic bottles. According to the site, the goal of the expedition is to “not only continue encouraging the world to focus on reducing, reusing and recycling more of its natural resources but ultimately to think smart by re-thinking waste as a resource.” The voyage is expected to kick off sometime later this year.
