Unconventional new eco-tour will take travelers through Japan's tsunami debris
According to Danielle Demetriou of The Telegraph, this unusual "tsunami debris" trip was created by two nonprofits devoted to raising awareness about sea pollution, the 5 Gyres Institute and the Algalita Marine Research Institute. The tour will begin in Hawaii and will head towards the gyre, "a vortex of ocean currents where sea rubbish accumulates". From there, travelers will head across the "Japan Tsunami Debris Field".
Since the news has been released there have been some Telegraph readers who don't agree with the ethics being used, calling the tour "depraved" and saying that the tour operator is "making money from tourists whilst hiding behind the "eco" excuse to justify what he is doing".
What are your thoughts on this unconventional new eco-tour?
