Spend Earth Day with David de Rothschild

Looking for something to do this Earth Day?  Here are a couple of ideas, both of which involve 2010 PopTech presenter David de Rothschild and his Plastiki.

If you’re in New York City, De Rothschild will be signing copies of his book, Plastiki: Across the Pacific on Plastic, An Adventure to Save Our Oceans, at Paragon Sports on Friday, April 22 from 4-5:30 pm.

Not in New York? Then why not check out his PopTech talk instead? In it, De Rothschild recounts the Plastiki’s evolution: from his realization about the massively destructive nature of plastic in our oceans to the research and development that went into creating a plastic bottle-constructed boat. He shares a video about his team’s sailing adventure through the Pacific Ocean and their accompanying campaign to raise awareness about the effects of this environmental devastation.

And if you want to learn what other green experts are doing to commemorate Earth Day this Friday, Treehugger has compiled a list, which, in addition to De Rothschild, includes Grist president Chip Giller, photograher Chris Jordan, and ocean activist Roz Savage.
