I just purchased my tile for the +Pool project in NYC. Have you heard of it yet? It’s a really well designed project that launched as a Kickstarter project a few years ago, and they are testing it right now! What is it? The short version: it’s a swimming pool inside of NYC’s East River using filtered river water. It’s a project to help New Yorkers see how much contaminants they are allowing into the river, in order to push for cleaner rivers. In their own words:
It started with a simple goal: instead of trying to clean the entire river, what if you started by cleaning a small piece of it? And what if you could change how New Yorkers see the rivers, just by giving them a chance to swim in it?
Like a giant strainer dropped into the river, + POOL makes it possible for Everybody to swim in clean river water right here in NYC.
For the long version, read up on it HERE, I think you’ll love it as much as I do! And if the description of the project isn’t enough to encourage you to sign up for your own tile, here are a few images to pique your interest even more. LOVE me a well-designed, enviro-friendly project. Can’t wait to get my certificate for my #pluspooltile!
