I originally saw this on Treehugger, and just had to know more.
So you’ve heard about the Pacific Gyre, right? A texas-sized “island” of garbage floating out in our beautiful ocean? Well these guys not only wanted to raise awareness of how polluted our oceans are, but they wanted to show what could be done with that garbage instead.
So, they built a boat out of plastic garbage and are sailing it across the sea.
But really, that doesn’t even begin to cover the awesomeness that is this project. This is amazing and a real inspiration for looking at our trash differently. I love it!
