The Perot Museum of Nature and Science will display Plastiki, a 60-foot catamaran made of 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles and other recyclable materials, in the outdoor plaza all summer long. Created by David de Rothschild, Plastiki made international headlines in 2010 when it sailed 8,000 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Sydney. The team’s ultimate mission was to draw attention to the 73.9 million pounds of plastic waste that has been dumped into oceans, while inspiring people to pledge to reduce their plastic footprint.
