Oil:Plastic bottles: Plastiki

A couple of years back, I ran a workshop in London to help bring together the thinking, design, communication and vision of the Plastiki expedition, a left-field project conceived by David de Rothschild to sail across the Pacific on a raft made out of plastic bottles.

David's goal was (and is) to underline the damage caused by thinking that we can use our oceans as a refuse dump, and to demonstrate the ecological awareness that can be engendered by treating your local area and home as though you were self-sufficient, and living on a boat.

They're due to set sail any day.

May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face

Happy sailing.
