Rubbish hotel opens in Spain
We’ve all stayed in a few rubbish hotels in our time, but a company in Spain is going out of its way to provide a property that is pure garbage. The Beach Garbage Hotel in Madrid is made entirely out of items of rubbish. The walls of the unique five-bedroom property have been constructed entirely from items washed up on beaches, found in rubbish dumps or bought at flea markets, the BBC has reported. The hotel’s creator, Ha Schult, said he built the property to highlight the huge amount of waste generated by mass tourism in Europe.
“I created the Beach Garbage Hotel because the oceans of our planet are the biggest garbage dump,” Schult was reported saying. “We wanted to show what our holidays could become if we don’t clean our beaches.”
