We’ve been following the development of the Plastiki — an eco boat with a hull containing 12,000 recycled 2-liter soda bottles. — since adventure ecologist David de Rothschild first floated the idea several years ago.

With construction and tests just about complete,  de Rothschild and his crew are getting ready to embark on an 11,000-mile journey from San Francisco to Sydney. The point of the boat and the journey is to highlight the global waste problem.

“We’re needlessly losing millions of seabirds and hundreds of thousands of marine mammals from ingesting plastic every year,” de Rothschild told ABC News. “I decided to take this ‘out of sight, out of mind’ problem and build a boat out of the very items that we were seeing ending up in our natural environment.”

Check out a video below of the Plastiki undergoing sea trials in San Francisco. They’re expected to begin their journey “within weeks”.
