Ecological Island: An artificial island resort will be built from plastic waste collected from the ocean

A floating hotel on the Indian Ocean coast of Australia, off the Cocos Islands, will be built from plastic bags collected during the filtering of ocean waters.

The plan is to use the waste that can be found from plastic bottles and other small plastics to tires, collected in special nets, as a basis to create the so-called raft on which the resort will be placed.

The raft will be anchored to the bottom of the ocean with large sediments of sand and silt. The aim is not to disturb the ecosystem in which grow a special type of trees known as mangroves, whose roots grow in water, and will be used to strengthen the bags of plastic garbage and thus form a stable structure for the resort, ie to prevent overturning or immersion in larger waves.

Otherwise, these trees are used in areas where there is a danger of floods, because when growing their roots "hunt" the sand and silt and make a kind of dam, through which water can not penetrate.

The structure of the island will also be made of recycled materials.
