Junk

Back when I started this blog, I was following the “Junk” raft across the Pacific Ocean.

They have finally put this video together of their trip:

In the Spring of 2008 three marine scientist built a raft from 15,000 plastic bottles, 30 sailboat masts, and a Cessina 310 aircraft fuselage. We launched on June 1, beginning an 88 day adventure from Long Beach, CA to Hawaii. We ran out of food, outran three hurricanes, and met a female rower in the middle of the ocean. It was an amazing adventure to bring attention to the rising plague of plastic waste in our ocean.
