La Casa Ecologica de Botellas, a home made from 24,000 recycled bottles
Why use bricks and the conformist materials for building your abode, when you could instead to the world and the environment as a whole a big favor and use recycled bottles instead! Alfredo Santa Cruz literally turned trash into a roof above his head using some 24,000 bottles to build La Casa Ecologica de Botellas, a place he calls home. Filled with sand or water for fireproofing purposes, these bottles have also found a place inside the home, being used to create furnishings.
A perfect example of an ingenious idea put forth with compassion towards the environment, this recycling effort by Cruz is bound to have many others around inspired.
