The House of Recycled Wine Bottles

This months My Alter-Eco features a house made entirely from recycled wine bottles. Peter Little, the builder of the house has even filled the bottles with water to help insulate the property.

Peter, a keen conservationist from Western Australia has spent 30 years developing environmentally friendly building materials and thinks the combination of water in glass is perfect for hot climates like Australia’s. He said “Water is probably, I think one of the miracle building materials of this century which nobody is using, from our point of view it can store more energy, heat or cool than any material we know.”

13, 500 wine bottles were needed in the creation of the eco house.
