Dumpster Dive

New Yorkers don’t have pools. We just don’t have the space. But all of that is changing thanks to MacroSea, a design firm that is reinventing the swimming pool. Taking recycling to the next level the group has remade three trash dumpsters, converting them into swimming pools.

The concept of taking existing storage containers and making something new from them has been done before. Take a look at this New York Times slideshow of a Texas home made from shipping containers. But the idea of using a trash dumpster for a swimming pool is a new one. Too bad the pools are currently invite-only.
