Plastic has been blamed for pollution and increasing the amount of garbage. Worldwide survey reports show that plastic products are one of the primary substances that cause the enormous growth of landfills. It can block sewage system and cause water logging, disrupting the lives of inhabitants. The modern recyclers and environment lovers have started a crusade of making useful structures with plastic bottles for keeping the environment clean and safe. It is a back dated conception that structures have to be made of brick, mortar or wood. Natural disaster prone places can use plastic bottles for making usable structures that will not cause a huge loss even if they get demolished. Following are some of the best structures made from useless plastic bottles that would have been added to the amount of litter causing global pollution otherwise.
