Another Use for Beer Bottles
Yes, the wonderful Buddhist temple in the top picture is made entirely from brown and green recycled beer bottles!
It is the Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew temple, built with more than a million glass bottles, in Thailand's Sisaket province. The Thai Buddhist temple has found an environmentally friendly way to utilize discarded bottles and clean up the environment- using them to build everything in its premises, from a crematorium to shelters and toilets. You can see a gallery of photos of this amzing structure at http://greenupgrader.com/4262/one-million-beer-bottles-later-and-its-a-buddhist-temple/
It is an inspiring(yes, I know) use of discarded materials. If only I could borrow their talent, creativity and energy!
