Bottle greenhouse adds sustainibility to harvesting

This “Bottle House” created by artist Jasmine Zimmerman is an open-roofed greenhouse made from hundreds of the plastic drink bottles that we use 70 million of everyday. The project will be exhibited in empty lots, rooftops, parks, and vacant buildings in order to spread the word about recycling and reporposing everyday objects in our environment. Pretty cool design that might just be a bit tricky to keep clean.

  1. If this is honestly intended to serve as a greenhouse, then it won’t last 2 years. The plastic will degrade due to UV exposure. Don’t people think of this? There are better ways to reuse plastic bottles before recycling them (those that are not regularly exposed to the sun).
