I’ll be Dining on WHAT? Floating bottles?

School of Fish Foundation’s Floating Dining Room launched into False Creek on Tuesday, Aug 20th.

You read right, a FLOATING dining room! It’s the world’s first, constructed on top of 1700 plastic bottles that have been rescued from the ocean.

On deck, they’ll be serving BC’s finest sustainable seafood. Naturally.

    I am curious how much of the other materials used building this was recycled and if the wood is treated naturally or with chemicals? Maybe I missed that part!
