Is it possible to build a Repurposed House?


 Did you know that it takes 450 years
for a plastic bottle to decompose?

 By filling plastic bottles with sand and molding them together with
mud or cement you can create a structure that is bullet proof, fire
proof, and will maintain an indoor temperature of 74° in the summer.

 It takes 14,000 plastic bottles to build a 1,200 sq.ft. house.
The United States uses 130 million plastic bottles every day
which is over 47 billion plastic bottles per year.  About 80%
of those bottles end up in a landfill.  The U.S. throws away
enough plastic bottles to erect 9,257 houses each day!  Wow.

Well.  About all I can say is, "That's a lot of beer."
