Tour A Private Island, Built On Trash! (VIDEO)

Meet Richart Sowa - he's created a floating island in Mexico atop of the waters of Isla Mujeres, the "Island of Women".

Near Cancun, Sowa's island has been open for tours in August, 2008.

The island has grown to apporximately 80ft and there are mangroves growing on it. Floating atop over 100,000 bottles, the island has three beaches, a house, two ponds, a solar-powered waterfall, river, a wave-powered washing machine and solar panels.

Always growing, always innovating, Sowa's island seems like a slice of paradise!
