A decade ago, Marcus Erikson jumped aboard a boat made of plastic bottles to make a Pacific Crossing and to make a point about marine debris. It was what he thought, a good cause - to draw attention to the garbage patch and to find a solution to the growing marine plastic pollution. He reflected on the nerve-wracking trip, as no one knew for sure if the boat would hold together for the trip, but it did. A decade later, he tells us he is encouraged and hopeful for the future.
