Life Guard Station 26, Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA
Collected trash for 20 min.
est. lbs. collected today - 6
est. lbs. collected to date - 74
David De Rothschild is sailing a boat made from lashing plastic bottles together from San Francisco to Australia. That's 11,ooo miles. To read more click here. It's called the "Plastiki"
Here's the crazy part, De Rothschild isn't the first guy to do this. If you want to read about the guys who sailed from Long Beach CA to Australia on 15,000 bottles, click here.
Both better ideas than leaving a bottle on the beach.
I'm always amazed when I find two shells still connected after getting washed up in the surf.
