Are You Headed to the Pacific Garbage Patch?

Alex Bellini, a self-described adventurer, speaker and mental coach, is looking for a ride to the Pacific gyre, and he’s willing to pay his way.

Bellini’s ultimate goal is to “travel to the world’s 10 most plastic polluted rivers on a hand-made, floating vessel made out of local recycled materials,” and to “row solo across the Pacific Garbage Patch, the largest accumulation of plastic in the world.” He hopes to get into the Pacific as soon as possible to stay ahead of the weather.

If you’re interested in giving Bellini a ride, please contact him here.
