Many assume all trash ends up in a landfill or unfortunately, in our oceans, but in one European city they're turning the city's plastic debris into something their community can actually use - a floating, public park.

Recycled Park is a floating park in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, made entirely out of recycled plastic collected from the same river its now floating in. Not only is it a unique space for the community to visit, but the floating park also cleans the Nieuwe Maas River, stopping plastics from the city before they make their way towards the ocean.
