Nigerians built houses with plastic bottles filled with sand. This new invention is said to help reduce the number of plastic bottles discarded in landfills every day. These houses are very strong and they offer lower prices.
The raw materials used for the construction of this house are free, making it a cost-effective option. Asides from that, these houses can withstand bullets and earthquakes, making them safe for people to dwell in.
Discarded plastic bottles are everywhere in the world and they have continued to cause pollutions in the environment. These plastic bottles are enough to build houses, thereby creating sustainable construction ideas.

According to Al-Jazeera, this bottle-brick technology is much stronger than the normal bricks used for construction. The brains behind this initiative are jobless youth in the central state of Kaduna. They fill the bottles with sand and then stack them in the midst of a mud technology.
Traditional leaders, government officials, and other people have been going to Kaduna to see how the walls are constructed. This project is environmentally friendly and that is the major concern of those behind the project.
This construction idea costs a third less than the typical housing in the region. About 14,000 plastic can be used for building a house and the company behind this project hopes to persuade the Nigerian government for additional funding to expand the business.
