New plastic bottle consisting of sailing boats

You can imagine the collection of tens of thousands of empty plastic bottles, tied together into a sailing boat, and then put it into the sea and sail from San Francisco to Sydney, which is 17700 kilometers away, during a rough and rough environment. Is this possible?

Some people may think this idea is very new and creative, but people who think of it may be crazy. However, the adventurous British environmentalist David de Rothschild is not only imaginative but also put into action. He is currently building a unique global plastic bottle in a dock in San Francisco, USA, hoping to make this idea a reality. This is the so-called Plastiki expedition. Rothschild prepares to drive this plastic bottle built at the end of March to cross the Pacific Ocean and travels for 17,703 kilometers. In fact, Plastiki is the 1.8-meter-long sailing boat. The name is to commemorate the Norwegian adventure legend Heydal, who sailed with a Balkan wooden boat, the Quinchizi, in 4947, and sailed for 4,300 miles. Trans-Pacific.

With the exception of the metal mast and glass fiber-like framework, Plastiki is made up of recycled plastics. The hull is constructed from 12 to 16 thousand plastic bottles. During the construction, tens of thousands of two-liter soda bottles were removed, washed and filled with dry ice powder. Dry ice sublimates into carbon dioxide gas to make the bottle stiffened by pressure. It is reported that Plastiki cabin can accommodate four people. Two wind turbines and solar panels are fitted on board to power multiple laptops, global positioning systems and satellite phones. Rothschild said that the concept of designing the ship is not to pollute the atmosphere and the sea, and everything on the ship can be recycled. But Rothschild refused to disclose the cost of his construction of the ship.

The Plastiki expedition is scheduled to depart from San Francisco at the end of March and travel via the Pacific Ocean to Sydney, Australia. It is expected that the journey will take place in Hawaii, Tuvalu, Fiji and Sydney. The entire journey is expected to take more than 100 days. Rothschild said that the goal of Plastiki’s navigation is not only to encourage people to accept clean, renewable energy, but also to see potential sources of consumer waste.

Rothschild himself is also an adventurer. He was born in a wealthy family and once crossed the Arctic and South Pole. In 2005, he created an eco-exploration organization and used field trips to remind people to pay attention to environmental issues. Rothschild said that many of the wastes around the world are plastic bottles that have been thrown away. Plastic bottles have become a symbol of waste. He hopes to use this action to promote and promote the recycling of plastic bottles.

According to the statistics of the eco-exploration organization, the U.S. produces 7 billion kilograms of plastics every year. Only 500 million kilograms of plastics are recycled, and many plastic bottles float freely in the sea. The East East Pacific dump site is a marine garbage distribution site that is twice as large as Texas in the United States.

When the Plastiki expedition is over, the ship will be disintegrated and become an emergency shelter, hard ball, cloth and more plastic bottles. Rothschild said: "This is a clear solution for recycling. We have shown that smart materials have further uses."
