Building with Bottles :
This is an effective solution for reusing the plastic. Bottles have the following advantages over bricks and other construction materials.
1. Low cost - You know how much a bottle costs!
2. Non-Brittle - (Unlike bricks)
3. Absorbs abrupt shock loads - Since they are not brittle,there can take up heavy loads without failure.
4. Bio climatic
6. Less construction material
7. Easy to build
8. Green Construction
