Recycled Content: Pools

With the summer heat beating down on me here in the south, I suppose having pools on the brain is normal.  I've bookmarked two great recycled pool posts this week and wanted to combine and share. 

Above, an emptied pool was turned into an amazing greenhouse, called the garden pool, with a plethora of plants, a tilapia pond, a chicken coop, is powered by solar panels and uses hydroponic gardening.  Watch the video, it's pretty amazing and check out their site here to learn more and see more photos.

Below is a post from inhabitat where unused dumpsters were turned into swimming pools in NYC.  I love all of the bright fencing and stilts used to make it even more fun.  See more photos and read more about this cool project here.
