Wayne Adams and Catherine King have spent the past 20 years building their own island near British Columbia. It is called Freedom Cove and has 12 floating platforms that run off of solar power. It is also a self-sufficient food garden. In winter, Wayne and Catherine collect rainwater for drinking and in summer, they use a nearby waterfall.
Tommy Kleyn rides his bicycle to work every morning along the waterfront in the Netherlands but he got tired of seeing how much pollution was lining its banks. He decided that he would fill one garbage bag per day with rubbish until he had cleaned it completely and his actions inspired others to help out as well. It is great to see how good it looks now.
