Floating Park Will Retrieve Plastic Waste From Dutch River
Recreational space the size of Hawaii's main island will be made from harvested recycled plastic.
The obvious solution to plastic waste clogging up our oceans is to scale back how much we use, but what to do with the mountain of waste that already exists? One solution comes from WHIM Architecture in the Netherlands, who want to create a Recycled Island made from marine litter in the North Pacific Gyre. Not only could the island be used as a recreational space, and respond to rising sea levels, but it’s success could also spark a host of new sustainable and flood-proof habitats.
