As many as 14,000 plastic bottles will go in to making a house, and the company is hoping to pitch the project to the Nigerian government in order to secure some additional funding and expand the enterprise.


More than 100 million plastic bottles are used worldwide every day!

If the world sent 1 days worth of empty water bottles to Nigeria instead of discarding them, the Nigerians could build more than 7000 homes.


Here's another use of plastic waste.

So instead of mud huts, it’s mud and trash huts.

IM2 , Biff_Poindexter we may have found your calling. You can move back to the motherland and help build these sustainable and environmentally friendly homes.

Mud houses reinforced with plastic bottles is nothing radical. Let's see them build bridges with this junk.
I predict that happening. Bridges have already been built out of cardboard tubes.

They have plenty of plastic waste they don't need 1 days worth of the world's plastic trash.

some people are so gullible,,

these are just mud huts with plastic bottle fillers,, due to the slickness of the plastic they are probably weaker than if they used rocks laying on the ground,,,

Apparently you know nothing of the bullet-stopping power of sand.

Perhaps they'll shoot through the window and door openings. Perhaps they'll damage part of the structure.

That does not change anything presented in the linked articles.
