Constructed from 12,500 recycled plastic water bottles, Plastiki proved it was more than a philosophical exercise when it completed an 8,000-mile journey across the Pacific.

Now, a new book, Plastiki: Across the Pacific on Plastic: An Adventure to Save Our Oceans chronicles the trials and tribulations of the 130-day adventure.
