NYC Subways "Recycled" To THE OCEAN

by Liz Heather in

Doesn't this seem nuts? I don't mean bad nuts, just nuts nuts. Apparently the disposing of old subway cars in the ocean "creates habitats for marine life and supports recreational fishing". New York City Transit has "provided" more than 2,500 retired subway cars to several states along the east coast of the U.S.A. Before the cars are buried at sea, they are stripped of potential environmental contaminants and then steam-cleaned.

Isn't that wild?! I would love to meet the person who came up with this idea. They've already been doing this for at least six years! How am I just hearing about this now!?
