Potential National Geographic Explorer of the year, environmentalist David de Rothschild sailed a 60ft catamaran made of 12,000 plastic bottles and other recycled plastic material. In 130 days, he and his crew traveled 8,000 miles from San Francisco to Sydney. A wayward member of the banking empire but a tireless ambassador for the environment, David is one of Green Prophet’s favorite eco-hunks. This trip in particular was designed to make people aware of the 4 billion tonnes of plastic waste that leaks into our oceans year.
