A 2006 world report about the buildup of plastics in our oceans marked an epiphany for Adventure Ecology founder David de Rothschild and the beginning of a journey to raise awareness about the environmental dangers facing our Oceans.

It gave birth to the Plastiki, a 60ft catamaran almost entirely from reclaimed plastic water bottles and self-reinforced PET, a uniquely recyclable and relatively unexplored material.

Tonight Architecture for Humanity designer Nathaniel Corum will talk at Plastiki Mission Control (Pier 45) about our involvement to help shelter this motley crew on their voyage.
