Junkus Pacificus

Junk Raft Completes Voyage to Hawaii |

Dr. Marcus Eriksen and Joel Paschal sailed out from Long Beach, California, on a boat made of 15,000 plastic bottles and a old Cessna 310 fusilage, which they appropriately named "Junk". Eriksen and Paschal took this little 2,600 mile cruise in order to bring awareness to the issue of ocean pollution. Just a short while ago, the team made land at the Ala Wai Harbor Fuel Dock on the Hawaiian island of Oahu - meeting their goal, and then some.

An amazing successful effort and a bold recycling statement.
