British environmentalist David de Rothschild's eco-friendly catamaran, the Plastiki, made from 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles, prepares to embark on a transpacific voyage from San Francisco to Australia. Rothschild, a decedent of the famous English banking family, will make the journey to bring attention to sites of ecological importance that are susceptible to issues caused by climate change.
