Recycle Island!

Richard Sowa made his own island—out of trash! 100,000 plastic bottles float this island in a Mexican bay. It is considered a “boat” by authorities, but it has soil, plants, and all the components of a home. The island is 66 feet in diameter and has beaches and water features. Sowa’s goal and purpose is to bring light to the problem of consumed trash in the environment. This is the second island he has created. The first one was

destroyed in a hurricane. What would name this “trash island?”
