How can plastic be recycled and used in an innovative way?
- In Cameroon, plastic bottles are used to build fishing boats.
- In Algeria, plastic bottles are filled with cement and used to built houses for refugees, protecting them from heat and sandstorms.
- In Holland and India, plastic is used to build roads that could use 4 years longer than normal roads. In Holland, these roads can even be recycled after the end of their life cycle.
- To make eco-bricks and green homes. How? By collecting old bottles of similar shape and size, filling them with plastic waste, and incorporating them in earth or clay structures.
