One man's trash is another man's treasure.

Thank Gawd someone came up with a really cool idea 
for what do with all the gross plastic bottles clogging up the world. 

Check this out!

 This modern dwelling is made out of plastic bottles. 

Eco-Tec's Ecoparque El Zamorano, Honduras.
Constructed with 8,000 bottles with composting toilets and a solar water heating system.
It's the first house in the world made from PET bottles without using cement in the walls.

  I don't like it, I LOVE it!
 Eco Tec's Sky Field House: The first vaulted ceiling using PET bottles.

 Most of the PET bottles used are recovered in clean-up campaigns and recycling drives. The community then fills them with sand. They train the unemployed and disabled in their construction methods. They build water tanks, schools, community centers, urban benches as well as homes.

 An Eco-Tec home in Bolivia.

 This home in Bolivia incorporates lots of wine bottles as well as PET bottles. I am totally down with drinking more wine and building a house out of the evidence.

 Taiwan's swanky plastic bottle building -- EcoARK Exhibition Hall. They are rocking it out.

Ecological Bottle House. Iguazu Falls, Misiones, Argentina.

The Morimoto Restaurant's bottle wall in NYC is composed of 17,400 half liter plastic bottles filled with mineral water and then backlit with LED lights. Nice.
