Plastic Bottle Boat

A safety ring is seen on a boat, made with plastic bottles, in Nymburk, Czech Republic July 12, 2014. Jan Kara, a 22-year-old student, and Jakub Bures, a 22-year-old car mechanic, built the 10-metre (32.8-feet) long boat from 5000 plastic bottles strapped to a wooden frame. They and two other men plan to pedal from their hometown Nymburk down the river Elbe to Hamburg in Germany to draw attention to an increasing plastic pollution in Europe, they said.
