The "SS Plastic Dining Room" is making waves in Vancouver, Canada, with their floating dining room made entirely of renewable, recycled, repurposed or reclaimed materials. What makes it even greener is that the chef de cuisine serves only sustainable seafood and local produce on board — proving that you can have luxury dining and be ecologically conscious.
Diners get a six-course meal by Canadian chef Robert Clark for $205 aboard the vessel that is currently docked in False Creek Yacht Club marina. The ship is not just an eco-friendly novelty, it's spreading the world about the dangers of commercial over-fishing and is also a source for raising funds for the School of Fish Foundation, an organization striving to put sustainable seafood programs in culinary schools around the world.
"We hope that after the first generation of chefs graduate from culinary school armed with a full knowledge of sustainable fishing, then we'll soon start to see a major shift in what's being served on people's plates," Shannon Ronalds, who established the foundation in March of this year, told CNN.
