The fact that the oceans are polluted to the point of disaster is a pretty easy think to ignore, but the stats are all too real.
Currently 90 percent of seabirds have plastic in their bodies due to ingestion patterns. By 2050, that number is forecast to have risen to 99 percent, and it’s said that there will be more plastic in the ocean than there will be fish.
So what’s being done? The long story short is not enough, but one architect from the Netherlands is looking to do his part to begin the road to recovery – by taking the plastic from the Nieuwe Maas river just before it reaches the North Sea and using it as a building material for stunning floating parks and gardens.
