“The power of art over trash: Dumpster Diving”

Macro-Sea is bringing new meaning to the term ‘dumpster diving,’ repurposing old dumpsters as swimming pools in Brooklyn. It’s been big news all over the internet for a little while now, and hundred of New Yorkers are dying to get an invite to the hipster weekend country club like hangout’s soirees. Company head David Belt borrowed the idea from a project in Athens, Georgia, and plans to expand it to southern strip malls. It’s located a block away from Gowanus Canal in NY. Fear not sanitarians: the pools are lined with plastic and feature legit filtration systems; some users have equated them to the pool at the Soho House (ha). Watch for Macro-Sea projects (Strip Farms??) in your area soon.
