Marcus sailed on a boat made from plastic bottles from Los Angeles to Hawaii last summer, and this bike trip is the second part of his and Anna's effort to bring attention to the throwaway plastics that end up in the bellies of birds, marine mammals and turtles. Anyway, they took one of our plush hearts along on their voyage as a mascot of love because they are planning on getting married on the trip! Mazel tov!
