Recycled plastic bottles used to build classrooms in Philippines
When remarkable individuals come up with ways to recycle materials that could potentially harm the environment, and come up with ways to reuse them for the betterment of mankind, they deserve more than just a common applause. My Shelter Foundation is one of those organizations that make us believe in the gentleness of mankind. The foundation has been using plastic bottles and recycling them to build classrooms in Philippines! The plastic bottles are reinforced with cement, soil and water and are strong enough to face the elements, making an ideal raw material to build structures. Currently, a school is being built in Laguna using this technique and will also use natural lighting and solar bulbs for lighting.
