Richie Sowa, a native of Great Britain, is a sidewalk and mural artist, a fine musician, and the creative force behind this amazing project. His island reflects his motto and goals for mankind.
Described in Ripley's Believe It or Not, published March 26, 2000, Richie constructed this floating island out of 65,000 reused plastic bottles, held together in a huge spiral with palapa roof netting. There he lives, complete with sand beach, fruit trees, a small palapa shelter, a kitchen with a solar cooker, and a self-composting toilet. You have to see it to believe it!
Eventually he will get his water supply from collected rainwater. His plan for the project was to "use the waste from this world as a foundation to create a tranquil piece of paradise and eventually sail around the earth on a floating island with the message of love and faith." Spiral Island is located in the southern canal of Puerto Aventuras south of Cancun, Mexico. Visitors are welcome. Any donation to the project of labor or money will help make his goal a reality.
