Classroom made of Recycled Plastic Bottle

In the Philippines, A school made out of recycled plastic bottle was constructed by Myshelter Foundation to help ease the classroom shortage in the country while protecting the environment at the same time.

Plastic bottle schools are made out of plastic bottles filled with liquefied adobe, which is said to be four times stronger than conventional hollow blocks.

The plastic bottle school is a cluster of eight classrooms that can accommodate 500 students in San Pablo, Laguna’s Barangay San Jose. Built on a 560-square-meter lot donated by the municipal government, the school’s classrooms are four times the size of a standard classroom and have much higher ceilings.
