Remember that thing called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (aka Pacific Trash Vortex)?
According to the blog green.blorge, there’s a project in the very early stages to do something with all of the garbage. Thanks to some grant money, a Holland-based architecture firm is looking into turning that Texas-sized garbage patch into a habitable island.
One of the three major aims of the project is to clean up the floating trash by recycling it on site. Two, the project would create new land for sustainable habitation complete with its own food sources and energy sources. Lastly, Recycled Island is to be a sea worthy island.
