Here are some examples of amazing recycled bottle structures around the world.
Beer Bottle Temple in Thailand
Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew is a Buddhist Temple made of beer bottles in the Sisaket province of Thailand. It is actually a recycling project to decrease the littering in the sea. So, the Buddhist monks requested people to bring their empty beer bottles in 1984, and they built a temple complex out of green Heineken and brown local Chang beer. Besides the temple, the monks also managed to build water towers, toilets, sleeping quarters and a crematorium. Today, the monks have decided to keep building and expanding the complex to recycle the bottles.
The Minnie Evans Bottle Chapel
This bottle chapel takes its name from an artist linked to the Airlie Gardens where the chapel is located. In 2004, Wright-Frierson and seven other local artists gathered over 5000 recycled bottles and built a kind of open air sanctuary. The side wings of the chapel are linked via bronze branch-like froms, and small objects like shells and broken pottery are also inset into the mortar.
