Kon- and Plas-tiki

Back in the 40’s the norwegian Thor Heyerdahl made his journey across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian Islands on the raft Kon-Tiki.

Next year David de Rothschild, an environmentalist, adventurer and author is leading an exciting expedition where they have borrowed the suffix of the raft from the Heyerdahl expedition.

The aim of the journey is to put focus to a zone in the southern Pacific Ocean, where the planet’s lost plastic is gathered in an area twice the size of Texas. The expedition will sail from San Fransisco to Sydney on a 60 ft catamaran made from reclaimed plastic bottles.

View the website, which in itself is worth watching, and get acquainted with the project and think of what we can do to reduce our use of plastic.

    My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for.

    can you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome website!
