On Wings of Waste aims to raise awareness about how we can better use our resources. It is a campaign that, we hope, will lead to greater global attention on the need to lower the carbon footprint; reduce the volume of waste pouring into the oceans and cutting the costs of energy worldwide.
We are excited to see other entrepreneurial projects arising such as the Greenheart Project.
The S/V Greenheart (“S/V” meaning “Sailing Vessel”) is the first new ship of its kind. It will be a sustainable, low-cost, zero-emission, sail/solar-powered ship developed specifically for those communities marginalized by a lack of capital, that hold a poor position in the global hub and spoke system, that lack access to deep-water ports, and that are unable to cope with rising fuels costs.
Upon completion, the S/V Greenheart will embark on maiden voyage through 20+ major ports of call in a 2-year circumnavigation of the globe. The objectives of this voyage will be to rigorously test the ship’s features and applications, increase awareness of the ship’s benefits and uses, support existing programs with partners, inspire interest in the development of future pilot programs, and promote and encourage global commercial use of renewable energy systems.

Team took delivery of project business cards today. With special thanks to Paul at The Printing Company for your generosity of this product sponsorship - unexpected and most appreciated. A fortuitous connection via The Warringah Chamber of Commerce Breakfast Speech earlier this month.
Now we look like pro’s! :)

On Wings of Waste plastic fulled flight adventure is still well on track despite being delayed. Our initial planned departure for Oct 2012 has been delayed until early 2013.
The fuel refining and prepositioning will take longer than expected and we are still trying to raise money.
We have the: plane, the clearances for the route we plan to travel, the plan to get the fuel in place… so now we are working hard on accuring sponsorship to make this wonderful project happen.
The interest in the project is amazing and it is showing how much people want to belong and want to make material changes to how we live our lives. Our adventure is already being shared by so many others.....

Jeremy was incredibly well received as guest speaker, at the Warringah Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting yesterday at a packed Dee Why beach restaurant.
Jeremy entertained his audience about the project’s tactical elements that are required to make the flight via end of life plastic a success in early 2013…and on cue, frolicking in the background a few metres off shore, were a pod of dolphins saluting his efforts to clean up their watery home. Fellow team mate, Tony Loughran, highlighted the project’s risk issues and the planned documentary rollout.
