Building a Boat with Marine Plastic Trash

Cleaning beaches and oceans from trash by transforming it in something useful and entitled to float on water.
A young man from Lamu, Kenya, collected tourists’ disused slippers and seaborne plastic bottles and threw them back to the ocean in the form of a boat.

Even if the ship doesn’t look seaworthy, it is a clear statement of the impact of plastic accumulation in marine environments. Peculiar object of the week.

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
