In Rotterdam, the recycled Island Foundation took over and made this floating park with plastic waste. This foundation makes proposals on how to deal with plastic pollution and climate change.
They focus on prevention, awareness, education, recovery and reuse of marine litter. Their main projects are currently their litter traps, to collect waste in the sea, and the Recycled Park.
The litter traps and floating parks are made from recycled plastic. The litter traps remove plastic from rivers in several countries just before it reaches the sea. The plastics are recycled to give the river a new value. We use the plastics to build floating platforms for a new green environment; a floating park.
You can visit Recycled Park in Rotterdam. After this successful implementation, they want to conquer the rest of the world with this approach. We dream aloud of some room for a ‘Tiny Food Forest’.
