Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“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!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
As a college student, this “pops” a few ideas into my head.
I don’t about how anyone else feels, but I felt like drawing my own. I feel like this more often than I want to, and I’m currently on the brink of just giving up altogether…it hurts like hell feeling left out of things or not being included, or just the feeling of being forgotten or ignored in general…I really want to just throw in the towel and abandon all ties to some people so I never have to feel this way…but I still have a small spark of hope somewhere that won’t let me quit no matter how much I’d really like to…so…I guess I’ll just wait and see..
