David de Rothschild set sail from Sausalito, California to Sydney, Australia in his boat Plastiki on March 20, 2010. After four months in the Pacific Ocean, the Plastiki completed that goal when it sailed into Sydney Harbour. Plastiki is made of reused plastics and aluminum. David de Rothschild and his crew wanted their voyage to send the message that waste can be reused in new ways.
