The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $25,000 that will go to the construction of benches made of garbage for a park in Tijuana, Mexico.

According to an EPA press release, the agency joined the San Diego Center for Civic Engagement in awarding $45,000 to 4Walls International for the construction of park spaces that will use trash pulled from the Tijuana River Valley as building materials.

One of the parks is in Mexico, the other in the U.S.

The San Diego Center for Civic Engagement provided $20,000 for the effort with the EPA providing $25,000.

When questioned by CNSNews.com, the EPA confirmed that all of the $25,000 awarded by the federal agency is dedicated to the efforts for the “Los Sauces” park in Tijuana.
