British Explorer David De Rothschild has a new challenge: to sail a sailboat bound by 12,000 discarded plastic bottles across the Pacific Ocean over 17,000 kilometers. More than a month later, the plastic boat finally landed for the first time to replenish. Since leaving the San Francisco port on March 24, the Plastiki has arrived on Christmas Island in Kiribati, the Pacific island country, and this is the first time six crew members have landed on board. Despite being bundled with discarded plastic bottles, the 18-meter-long Plastiki has proved its ability to withstand wind and waves. The ship is also equipped with a number of laptops, global positioning systems and satellite phones, which are powered by solar panels and two sports bicycles on board.
Plastic bottles are mainly made of polyethylene or polypropylene and a variety of organic solvents. Polyester (PET), polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are widely used as raw materials in plastic bottles.
