Floating parks made from plastic waste could help communities tackle pollution


The equivalent of one truck of plastic waste is dumped into the ocean every minute, but what if it could be caught and removed before it drifted out to sea?One such solution, called the Recycled Park Project, is being floated. Developed over the last five years, the idea is turning plastic waste into islands.

The Recycled Island Foundation and the Whim Architecture firm launched the Recycled Park Project in 2014 with the aim of catching plastic waste in Rotterdam’s New Meuse river before it enters the North Sea.

Three floating litter traps with nets attached collect litter in the water while volunteers sweep the riverbank.The retrieved plastic is converted into hexagonal building blocks that have been used to build a floating island park in the river itself. The park is open to the community and filled with plants and benches, giving people a new green habitat to enjoy in the heart of the city.Three floating litter traps with nets attached collect litter in the water while volunteers sweep the riverbank.The retrieved plastic is converted into hexagonal building blocks that have been used to build a floating island park in the river itself.
