Baja Chatarra

The Chatarra is a 20-foot boat made from reclaimed plastic bottles and other recycled materials that John Pack. Rachel Pack sail from San Felipe, Baja California to La Paz, Baja California Sur in mid-June.

Please get involved here is how:

According to the Center for Biological Diversity, plastic pollution harms an estimated 100,000 sea turtles and marine mammals and 1,000,000 sea creatures each year. As plastic debris floats in the seawater, it absorbs dangerous pollutants like PCBs, DDT and PAH. These chemicals are highly toxic and have a wide range of chronic effects, including endocrine disruption and cancer-causing mutations. The concentration of PCBs in plastics floating in the ocean has been documented as 100,000 to 1 million times that of surrounding waters. When animals eat these plastic pieces, the toxins are absorbed into their body and passed up the food chain and ultimately to our dinner plates.
