Trash or Treasure?

Across the pond in Madrid, a German artist has found a constructive way to protest pollution: He's built a five-room Beach Garbage Hotel from trash he fished out of the ocean.

Put these incredible photos in front of your looking balls!

Or how bout this ? A guy in Texas has built 13 houses entirely out of other people's garbage.

The roofs are made of old licence plates. The floors are made of wine corks. One house even has a skylight that used to be a Pyrex baking dish. He's trying to get the world thinking about sustainable housing in a new and tangible way.
