A creative idea for the plastic in our oceans
I don’t know if this the most interesting or the craziest idea I came across this year : WHIM Architecture outlined a plan to create Recycled Island which would collect plastic in our oceans and use it to build an Hawaii-sized island.
On top of cleaning our oceans from all this mess this project could serve as a home for future climate refugees and as an example of sustainable habitat and lifestyle.
Of course this idea has very little – or none at all – chance to become a reality as it will be horrendously expansive and would require huge amounts of energy but I still like it. More on TreeHugger and Inhabitat.
