The Kid Should See This

Plastic Bottle Village

Robert Bezeau is building an entire village in Bocas Del Toro, Panama with houses created with plastic bottles. His goals: Reduce the amount of plastic waste in his environment with an unusual idea, and capitalize on the additional benefits of building with bottles. From PlasticBottleVillage.com:

The Village is home to revolutionary techniques in eco-building, and utilizes recycled plastic bottles as its main insulation inside of its concrete walls… We will be living inside what we have consumed and thrown away, and will re-construct those materials into modern, stylish, and quality built residencies. The homes are also earthquake resistant, and very cool in temperature, so there is no need for air conditioning. This will aid in conserving energy for The Village, which is a solar friendly community.

We are “changing the world, without changing the Earth, one home at a time.”
