Welcome to the Crápola Islands


Millions of tonnes of plastic floating around in the Pacific constitute one of the largest — if not the largest — rubbish dumps in the world, and covers an area bigger than the US according to one account. Out of sight, out of mind? Maybe, but if you eat seafood, probably not out of your digestive system. Still, what harm is a bit of plastic going to do? The Crápola Islands is on the look out for new ‘citizens’. This rapidly accumulating land mass in the heart of the Pacific Ocean is a product of ‘modern living’ and comprises a veritable cornucopia of plastics. Not enough toxicity in your life? This could be the place for you.
