Recycled Plastic Bottles

The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!

I love this story that I spotted on Here is an amazing way of using up the plastic bottles and creating homes! 

By filling plastic bottles with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, walls can be created, and a home can be built that is fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.

We throw away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America!

Please watch this inspiring video for an amazing solution to the millions of plastic bottles that fills landfills.
