THE ROSE: A SHIP THAT PUTS TRASH TO THE TASK

 THE ROSE: A SHIP THAT PUTS TRASH TO THE TASK
 The H.M.S. Rose, the largest wooden sailing vessel in the world,


will be the only ship in Operation Sail to boast sails made from more than 125,000 recycled plastic soda bottles!
 The DuPont Company recycled soda bottles and prototype car fenders into fiber that was woven into sailcloth for the Rose. Now, her 13,000 feet of sails will be put to the test when it joins over 200 majestic tall ships at the South Street Seaport this July 4 for the 500th anniversary celebration of the discovery of America.
 The Rose, a replica of the original British 24-gun frigate active during the Seven Years and Revolutionary wars, will be available for touring:
 -- Today
 -- South Street Seaport
 -- Pier 16
 So "shiver ye timbers," matey, and get a sneak preview of this extraordinary sailing vessel.
 CONTACT: "Mike" Simons, 212-614-4217, Rhonda Jackson, 212-614-4942, or Mary Kate McDonald, 212-614-5012, all of Burson-Marsteller, for DuPont.
