A boat aptly called the Plastiki, made out of 12,500 recyclable plastic bottles filled with carbon dioxide, has set sail for a great voyage through the Pacific. While it seems like an extreme stunt, the journey has more of a purpose than just seeing if a plastic boat can make the trip.
By now, many of us have heard about the cialis online pharmacy giant collection of floating plastic known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The large aquatic dump is canadian pharmacy scam located in the North Pacific Gyre, one of the five major vortices of currents in the world's oceans. It is twice the size of levitra without prescription Texas and contains billions of tiny pieces of plastic.
The boat's crew including David de geniune viagra Rothschild, Jo Royle and David Thomson came up with this interesting way to draw more attention to the tons of plastic that make it into our oceans. They constructed the Plastiki to viagra gel online tour the http://www.markwellgroup.com.au/cialis-soft-tablets Pacific Ocean, teaching us about recycling and lowering our consumption along the way.
The team will take approximately three months to reach Sydney, Australia from San Francisco, heading straight through the garbage patch. They will also visit other environmental hot spots including damaged coral reefs and low-lying island nations threatened by rising sea waters.
The boat is outfitted with rain collection tanks for fresh water, a gas stove for cooking food, a vertical garden on the back mast for growing food and fishing tackle for catching fresh fish. It also has solar panels, wind and sea turbines and exercise bikes for power generation.Triple Pundit
