fragmented the world, however intense the national rivalries, it is
an inexorable fact that we become more interdependent every day. I
believe that national sovereignties will shrink in the face of universal
interdependence. The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now,
as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: We are all
in the same boat." - Jacques Cousteau

Come Share With Us…One Ocean, One Dream.
has teamed up with the Algalita
Marine Research Foundation (AMRF) to assist
in bringing about awareness to the issues of waste plastic
and cleaning up our oceans. With over 10 years of research
and the scrutiny of colleagues at universities and laboratories
all over the globe, AMRF is recognized as the authoritative
source for data pertaining to plastics and their effects
on our oceans. Ocean Detox is currently working in collaboration
with AMRF in order to find, and provide, a solution to the
variety of deadly problems that plastic debris cause. AMRF
has truly been an inspiration and a great resource for Ocean
Detox. Their passion and commitment to cleaning up our oceans
is unparalleled. We are proud to be a part of the team as
AMRF makes their 6 week, 2000 miles voyage across the Pacific
from Long Beach to Hawaii on 15,000 plastic bottles.
A team from Algalita Marine Research Foundation
has constructed a boat made entirely of recycled junk. Old
boats, fishing nets, plastic bottles, even part of an old
airplane were all used in the construction of “Junk”.
The AMRF team has been busy preparing this “Junk ”
for a sea adventure from Long Beach to Hawaii. The purpose
here is really quite simple. The boat attracts quite a bit
of attention because of its unique design. The "Junk"
is a 20ft. recycled plastic raft. Over 15,000 plastic bottles
have been used to make “Junk” float. The boat
will depart from the Aquarium of the Pacific (AoP) to set
sail on a 60 day adventure to Hawaii in order to raise awareness
about plastic marine debris on Sunday June 1, 2008. Join
us for the send off party from 2-3pm PST at the AoP. Check
to follow the voyage of the "Junk". Be a part
of the movement and the future and share with us…one
ocean, one dream.
Good Luck Marcus and Joel! Ocean Detox will see you in Hawaii!
