I’m excited to show you how this British artist turned “eco architect” has literally created his own piece of land on a floating island made out of more than 100,000 plastic bottles. Essentially he has built his own island with other people’s trash. His name is Richart Sowa. And he’s been doing this for many years now. Since 2008, he has been letting people tour his island and tiny home. That’s how we got this video (thanks to Rose Robin, who toured it and published the video tour and interview back in 2013.)

So far Richart’s island has been featured in newspapers, TV shows, documentaries, and more. It’s been shared all over the world. Even in an MTV Extreme Cribs episode back in 2011. And Richart Sowa is just keeping busy making constant improvements to his island. As of 2013, his island features three beaches, two ponds, one house, solar panels, and more. In the future? An ocean powered cooling system and more. You must watch the video to really understand and be able to enjoy it thoroughly. So please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
