Linda and I talked about this story on today’s Planet Philadelphia show. We saw it on BBC News and we both just loved the concept of Robert Bezeau creating the world’s first plastic bottle castle. Here’s the link to see the video: http://www.bbc.com/news/av/business-43825834/why-i-live-in-a-plastic-bottle-castle
This story is also related to things folks are doing right here in our community - building things out of plastic bottles. If you’d like to find out more about what’s happening with that, you can contact local author Betsy Teutsch who wrote a guide to inexpensive things folks can do to fight climate change, 100 Under $100 and started this whole bottle brick project.
