House bottle house in Honduras

 

Houses built with recycled bottles and clay for Garifuna families in need

Project for the next 3 years

THE PROBLEM:

There are a lot of Pepsi, Coca Cola and derivatives plastic bottles all over the streets and beaches. We consume each year more than 225 million tons of plastic and only 18% is recycled. Knowing that the plastic decomposes in 300 years ... questions must be asked!

There is no treatment or recycling of plastic waste (and others). All waste is burned on the beaches and in the dumps, which has a detrimental impact on the environment.

In Garifuna villages, there are many homeless single-parent families (single woman with 3 or 4 children). They are often temporarily housed with family or in small precarious and unhealthy houses.

 

THE SOLUTION

Using plastic waste (bottles) and surrounding materials (clay, bamboo and cane) we build green homes to provide shelter for homeless Garifuna families.

then, we will equip these houses with a wind turbine that we designed out of recycled products.

 

OBJECTIVE

With the participation of families and students from Quebec, we will build a ecological house equipped with a wind turbine to provide a home for a deserving family in 14 days.

 

PROJECTION

The second year, we will create a autonomy cycle relying on nature. We will plant fruit and vegetable trees in their garden using compost. The objective is to arrive at an equation HOUSING + ENERGY + FOOD = life for these families.
