Today I came across a post on Treehugger about a house in Puerto Iguazú made entirely of recycled materials. Alfredo Santa Cruz and his family used 1200 PET bottles to build the walls and more than 1300 Tetra Pack cartons for the ceiling. And that's not counting the tables, bedframes, windows...the list goes on.
In the words of Mr. Santa Cruz:
"Domestic waste can be transformed into useful stuff. We developed our own technique, which allows people to build a house that's perfectly functional at a very low cost and with their own hands. This is not just a project, but a reality."And if you're thirsty, you can always nip a drink out of one of the bricks in the wall.
What? They're empty. Oh.
Still, v. cool.
