I really like the bottle house idea, something similar was done on Vancouver Island ? with glass wine bottles.

A second useful purpose for "disposables" is a great idea, but what do you do with 1,200 convenience diapers that a child uses by age two? That's a mountain of *bleep* for sure. What a treat to see those damn things when walking along an otherwise beautiful shoreline or roadside when parents can't be bothered to dispose properly. Maybe some even get flushed down toilets, by adults, who should know better.

Sadly, this monumental effort to scoop plastic trash from ocean surface failed. Off for repairs and hope it returns to its task soon.
