Adventurer and environmentalist David De Rothschild and the crew of "the Plastiki" will leave Sausalito on Saturday, on a trans-pacific journey.

The 60-foot catamaran made primarily from more than 12,000 recycled plastic bottles. The Plastiki relies primarily on renewable energy systems.

The boat and crew will journey more than 11,000 nautical miles, to draw attention to ocean pollution -- in particular the colossal amounts of plastic debris.
