Building with plastic bottles

Newer Older

I wish I had come across this idea years ago when I was more involved in schools and community art projects.
I have done a lot of strange things with recycling plastic drinks bottles, but why did I never think of building walls?
These were used to screen off a natural sewage treatment area for the Fife Earthship where plants were used , but I also saw a large greenhouse built with these.........which got me thinking...................
The trouble is I don't really drink fizzy pop to get the bottles!

    This is such a cool idea. A great way to re-duce, RE-USE or re-cycle.

    FANTASTIC!!! I love it! I want to build one...don't drink soda, but perhaps if I asked people to save them for me...hmmm...now you've got me thinking!

    Just visit your nearest beach...you'll find plenty of plastic bottles washed up there.

    If water and a few drops of bleach were put in the bottles, they might be VERY useful in a greenhouse - even storing some of the heat. Hope people are also aware of the pop can solar heater for houses.
