That’s A Bunch Of Rubbish (From The Open Water)

German artist H.A. Schult built the Beach Garbage Hotel, a five-bedroom hotel in Madrid’s Plaza de Callao as part of Madrid’s hosting of the International Tourism Fair to call attention to the massive amount of waste generated in Europe.

I created the Beach Garbage Hotel because the oceans of our planet are the biggest garbage dump.”

We wanted to show what our holidays could become if we don’t clean our beaches,” said spokeswoman Rose Piqueras. About 30% of the objects found in the hotel were found on beaches in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain while the walls of the Beach Garbage Hotel are covered with the garbage deposited by the tides in Europe, waste found at dumps and items bought at flea markets.
