Plastic Bottle Palace


Puerto Iguazu, Argentina
The Santa Cruz family have created their very own plastic bottle palace, constructed from thousands of PET plastic bottles which were heading for improper disposal. It is portable, simple and creative and “a tool for promoting ecological and social responsibility” said Mr Santa Cruz. The walls, columns, beds, couches, coffee tables, and even an outdoor garden playhouse are all made from discarded drink bottles.

A list of what Alfredo used to construct La Casa de Botellas:

1200 PET plastic bottles in its walls
1300 milk and wine Tetra Pack containers in its roof
140 compact disk boxes in its doors and windows
120 PET plastic bottles in the couches
200 PET plastic bottles in the bed
