Using fifteen million popsicle sticks, five thousand school children worked together with stuntman Robert McDonald to create a life size viking ship.  The sea-worthy vessel – ‘The Sea Heart’, took four years to construct, with the children collecting and recycling a large portion of the popsicle sticks used to create the vessel.  American-born, Netherlands-based McDonald believes The Sea Heart is the biggest recycled materials project of it’s kind.  On it’s launch McDonald and four crew members sailed from the Netherlands to England in April 2008.
