A project that was 4 years in the making, Plastiki set sail from under the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge on Saturday. The voyage will take the 60ft catamaran engineered from approximately 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles and its crew across the Pacific Ocean to Sydney, Australia.

As the brainchild of ecologist and British adventurer David de Rothschild, the 11,000 nautical miles journey is an effort to draw attention to the massive amount of waste that is dumped in the world’s oceans and show how the re-evaluation of waste as a resource is possible.

The Plastiki crew consists of David de Rothschild, Jo Royle, David Thomson, Olav Heyerdahl, Vern Moen, and Max Jourdan.
