In the News . . . . . Boat made of trash prepares to set sail

A 18m (60 feet) long boat made mostly from trash is patiently waiting for fair weather so it can take to the high seas to drive home the environmental message of recycling, reusing and rethinking the way we deal with plastic.

The appropriately named Plastiki, which is made from over 12,500 plastic bottles, will set sail from San Francisco and head to Sydney with eco-warrior and banking heir David De Rothschild at the helm.
