With Earth Day rapidly approaching, National Geographic is prepping the launch of “The 12,000 Bottle Boat”, aka the tale of last year’s Plastiki Expedition across the Pacific.

The 60-foot catamaran, famous for its use of 12,500 recycled plastic bottles and other waste products in its design, was the brainchild of explorer David de Rothschild. Along with five other crew members, the expedition traveled 1,500 miles from San Francisco to Syndey Harbour over the course of four months.

National Geographic’s special will chronicle the entire story – from the creation and journey of the Plastiki to the daily lives and hazards facing its crew. It airs on airs on Thursday, April 21 at 8PM ET/PT. Check out a clip after the jump below.
