Settlement with plastic bottle houses

A few years ago, Canadian Robert Bizo (Robert Bezeau) moved to live on one of the tiny islands near Panama. The man has repeatedly noted that the coast is literally littered with discarded bottles of water and sugary drinks. After some time, Bizo found the use of plastic mountains and decided to build a whole village using empty bottles as the main building material.

On the island of Colon in the Bocas del Toro archipelago, the world's first village will soon appear, houses in which will be constructed of plastic (Plastic Bottle Village). The initiator of this project was Canadian Robert Bizot. The first house of this village is ready, and the construction of the next two-storey mansion is already being completed.

The technology of construction is quite simple: empty bottles are placed in interconnected wire nets, and then placed in steel frames. Next, the workers do the wiring and fail all necessary communications. The resulting walls are covered with concrete. At the final stage the walls are plastered, put in windows and doors and make a roof.

Robert Bizo says that it took more than 10,000 bottles to build the first house. Enthusiast notes that such a house has good thermal insulation and does not require the installation of air conditioning. In addition, it is seismic resistant.

33.5 hectares of land was allotted for the future village. It is planned that 90 to 120 houses will be built on this site. In addition to houses, Bizo wants to build a pavilion for yoga and a shop.
