The above hunk of a fellow, David de Rothschild, came up with the incredible idea of the above boat, the Plastiki. This eco-friendly boat is made out of 12,500 plastic bottles and sugarcane-and-cashew-nut glue, which is equivalent to the same number consumed every 8.3 seconds in the United States. Plastiki is currently being sailed from San Francisco to Sydney with the help of six crew members. Check out all of the statistics and track the voyage. Plastiki shares a great message with all of us, let's "beat waste one bottle at a time!"
Also meet two of the adorable crew members who were featured in May's Vogue
