Bon voyage party for plastic bottle raft Sunday

6:39 PM PDT on May 28, 2008

JUNK -- a raft made with 15,000 plastic bottles -- is ready to set sail! Last week, Anna Cummins wrote about the JUNK voyage's
effort to call attention to the frightening plastic pollution in the
oceans -- and now you're invited to the bon voyage party.

Meet Dr. Marcus Eriksen and Joel Paschal -- both of Algalita Marine Research Foundation -- before they set sail on their 6 week journey from Long Beach to Hawaii. Then follow their progress on the JUNK blog!
