We received a lovely email of inspiration from one of our past volunteers, Jillian Hopkins, who has been a great advisory team member on the ground back here in Australia.
“Great news the current volunteers are looking into using plastic bottles for Bholu 10.
I saw some great schools built using plastic bottles in Guatemala that might be good inspiration and couldn’t resist sending you some pics.
Here is the website (in English or Espanol) - there is good construction info and a quick video. The Pura Vida crew got locals to help stuff their bottles with plastic wrappers and used chicken wire to keep everything in place, then rendered it so the plastic would not decay (leaving a peep-hole so you can see how they did it)
I also included a picture of the glass beer bottle temple in Thailand for your interest - amazing!! ”
