Living it up in a floating garbage island home..

Richard Sowa cares as much about the aesthetics of his home as he does about it’s sustainability. Not only has he made his floating island home out of garbage, he’s also made it beautiful. By growing mangroves over plastic bottles wrapped in fruit bags he’s managed to turn trash well and truly into treasure. With the addition of a floating bedraft, a working shower and a composting toilet, it’s truly a unique sustainable home that kills two birds (too much rubbish, not enough land) with one stone. I wonder if it could or will ever catch on, and whether it’s feasible to implement solutions such as this on a larger scale?
