British artist, Richart Sowa, has spent the past decade of his life building a self sustaining, floating island made out of natural materials, and get this, trash! He has built this small island up and up until the plants rooted enough to give him a solid ground the build on. Atop this trash island, he has also built his home, that is powered completely by solar power. His home is complete with a biodegradable toilet and running water. This amazing structure is located in the waters of the beautiful Isla Mujeres, Mexico, just off the coast of Cancun.
