Since the March tsunami in Japan, scientists have been studying and tracking the millions of tons of debris in the ocean. Much research has been focused on the cycle of plastic — where it travels, how it breaks down, etc. For $15,000, you too can join in the research, documenting your observations as well as being a working ship's crew member.

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Plastics & Resins, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Plastics & Resins today.

That's the sort of holiday that I could truly enjoy. If I could afford it I would do it.

This privately funded expedition is a great example of patronage.

I would really like to see more of this type of tourism.
