Dia Mundial dos Oceanos


When I wrote this or this, I had already enjoyed that front beach all surrounded by Table Mountain views, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet, before. But never at around this time of the year when it turns into a dreadful place that totally confirms what artist/entrepreneur Ha Schult says on 'take two' of this post bellow: "the oceans of our planet are the biggest garbage dump"!

So, if I may suggest, Blouberg would be a prime location for a Beach Garbage Hotel… Another such location that I can think of is Luanda and, more specifically, the island of Mussulo!


"I created the Beach Garbage Hotel because the oceans of our planet are the biggest garbage dump," the artist Ha Schult told the AFP news agency of his five-bedroom Madrid lodging built from rubbish, which opened today as part of the International Tourism Fair. Around one-third of the items used to construct the temporary accommodation came from discarded items found on the beaches of Europe; other building materials originated in dumps and flea markets. The point of the project was to draw attention to the huge amount of waste generated by mass tourism, especially on beaches, said Rose Piqueras, a spokeswoman for the hotel.
Rome is known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with unforgettable architecture and an atmosphere that can’t be found anywhere else. Lately, though, it’s become a real dump. German artist Ha Schult constructed a temporary hotel in the city to highlight the sad state of Europe’s beaches. The hotel, part of Corona’s Save the Beach campaign, is constructed of garbage collected from the shoreline.
