Would you like to sail this boat across the Pacific?

A boat made of 12,000 plastic bottles has set sail on a voyage from San Francisco to Sydney to spread awareness about pollution in the world’s oceans.

Environmentalist and banking heir David De Rothschild and a crew set out on the appropriately named Plastiki catamaran.

Their 11,000-nautical mile journey will go past the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a sea of waste about five times the size of the UK or twice that of Texas.

Can you imagine seeing that patch? Poor marinelife, poor oceans, stupid humans, we ruin everything.
