A brave, ingenious Bolivian woman set about carrying out a very interesting project, called Casas de Botellas, which had a double advantage.
It was to help people and fight against the pollution of nature by transforming waste into material for construction.
Lawyer Ingrid Vaca Diez decided to build houses for needy families.
And for this work, she primarily uses plastic and glass bottles.
To consolidate the walls, the woman uses organic waste, sand, lime and cement.
They are very solid constructions thanks to some materials used, such as cement, sand and lime.
Since 2000, Diez has built 300 houses, each of which is 170 square meters and requires 36,000 bottles.
It is obvious that the woman cannot build so many habitats alone.
It does this with the help of future inhabitants who also take part in the construction of their own houses.
For each building, the work lasts twenty days.
These houses were built not only and in Bolivia, but also in Mexico, Argentina, Panama and Uruguay.
Taking into account the bottles and other waste used, we can say that this project is a real fight against plastic pollution.
