An island the size of Hawaii and made entirely from plastic bottles could one day become the hottest postcode on earth, and is part of an incredible environmental vision for a future settlement.
CGI images show how a team of Dutch scientists plan to take 44 million kilograms of plastic waste currently bobbing around in the Pacific Ocean and transform it into Recycled Island, 

Solar and wave energy will be used to sustain the island and its 500,000 inhabitants.

A spokesman for the ambitious project said: “The proposal has three main aims – cleaning our oceans from a gigantic amount of plastic waste, creating new land and constructing a sustainable habitat. Recycled Island seeks the possibilities to recycle the plastic waste on the spot and to recycle it into a floating entity.”

The Pacific Ocean currently holds the largest amount of plastic waste in the world. Ocean currents keep the plastic in the sea in giant rubbish dumps, which are fatal to sea life
