The Plastiki, a 60 foot boat made up of 12,500 of recycled bottles and helmed by eco-hottie David de Rothschild, finally reached Sydney today on its journey across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco. In their four month voyage, the crew visited the giant Pacific trash vortex (which is the size of Texas) and weathered storms, heat waves and cramped conditions in the name of raising awareness for ocean pollution. The crew's official filmmaker even chose to stay on board during the birth of his first child, witnessing the whole thing via Skype.

Congrats to the Plastiki crew. Now go have a beer and eat some vegetables.
