After months and years of collecting used plastic bottles from hotels , the embassies of Nigeria collected an estimate of 7800 bottles to build the inaugural home in south central America. According to Nigeria this house will be solar powered ,fuel efficient and water purification tanks. In Nigeria there are millions of plastic bottles dumped into their landfill causing many problems such as pollution ,irrigation blockages and health problems to reduce this problem they decided to make this house out of reuse stuff and make it useful. The bottles are held together with dry soil or construction waste the bottles are laid in rows like bricks would be this all created a three room home .
