I wonder exactly how itchy wearing a burlap bag is?

The Metropolitan Transit Authority’s recycling program retire the remains of obsolete New York subway cars into the Atlantic ocean. Over the past decade, the program has dropped over 2,500 subway carriages into the ocean, helping to rebuild underwater reefs and homes for marine life along the eastern seabed, while also solving the problem of disposal.
