|In protest of the massive amounts of trash being dumped into the Pacific Ocean, Dr. Marcus Eriksen and his team of like minded supporters have put together a boat to sail 2000 miles from the California coast to Honolulu, Hawaii to help raise an awareness for this problem. Piloting their vessel made from motor-less craft from 15,000 recycled bottles, fishing nets, and a Cessna cockpit, they are sailing 2,000 miles to raise awareness for the problem. With a little less than 1000 miles to go, they expect to arrive finish the trip in a couple weeks.
