Bottle tower gardens

video Bottle tower gardens
This video shows the efficiency and sustainability of a bottle tower garden. They can be installed against the wall of a house or along a hedge or a fence.  The number of bottle towers has to be adapted for providing food security for the family all year long and year after year.  It is a method applicable anywhere on earth, both in rural and in urban areas, e;g. on a balcony.  It can be applied at the lowest cost to alleviate malnutrition and hunger.

Don't the bottles contain nasty chemicals that contaminate the plants?

How are those towers made?
Are there any cuts or holes? Are they just plain plastic pipes of joined bottle bodies?
I Assume there are holes, but how do you avoid dirt from falling out?
