This solution is: cheap, bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 deg in the summer time.
If America really cared about solving the problem of homelessness among its citizenry, here’s an idea that would work.
Anyway, let’s say the problem with homeless people in America was a result of not enough housing. Then, this idea would work. Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles?
By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
Very Simple and Economic Construction Process
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger:
The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles. The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
These pictures show houses being built using this simple system ..
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia.
Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills.
Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?
This can increase living conditions and save millions of lives in the developing countries but can also be used in developed countries. Interested? Go to next page to see the video ..
