Desde 1978, los seres humanos han contribuido inconscientemente para difundir estas botellas de plástico en los océanos, playas, ciudades y tierras.

El objetivo de Plastic Bottle Village es la creación de un centro de educación que enseñe a las personas de diferentes partes del planeta, la forma de reutilizar las botellas de plástico como materiales de construcción para sus viviendas.

Las sociedades de hormigas tienen división del trabajo, la comunicación entre los individuos, y la capacidad de resolver problemas complejos. Estos paralelismos con las sociedades humanas han sido durante mucho tiempo una fuente de inspiración y objeto de estudio.

Las hormigas parecen actuar como una entidad unificada, colectivamente trabajar juntos para apoyar la colonia. En de Plastic Bottle Village inspiramos a reunir a un colectivo de mentes y cuerpos, para trabajar juntos y crear conciencia, y de participar en la educación del mundo, a los efectos positivos de la reutilización y la construcción ecológica con materiales reciclados.

Proteger la fauna.

Cambia el mundo sin cambiar la tierra.


THE INVENTOR OF PET PLASTIC BOTTLES

Nathaniel C. Wyeth
Born October 24, 1911
Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, United States
Died July 4, 1990 (aged 78)
Nationality American
Alma mater University of Pennsylvania
Occupation inventor, chemical engineer

Nathaniel Wyeth joined DuPont in 1936 as a field engineer.

In 1967, he pondered whether soda could be stored in plastic bottles. After experimenting with a plastic detergent bottle that proved incapable of withstanding the forces of pressurized liquids, he realized that a much stronger material would be required. He settled on polyethylene terephthalate ( PET) as the material and received a patent in 1973.

Coca-Cola introduced the first single use PET bottle in 1978.

What a great invention in 1973. 40 years later, if Nathaniel came out of his grave today, and saw the disaster his invention created to our planet, he would probably realize that his invention was more a crime against humanity…

Did Nathaniel think about the following, back then?

  • Time needed to drink the content, and how much time for the bottle to degrade.
  • That only 30 % would be recycled, and 70% would be spread in our ocean’s and nature.
  • That nature would need 500 years + to degrade, and eliminated his bottle.
  • That human life expectancy is 80 years, and his bottle is 500 year +.
  • That every time someone would consume a drink, he would mortgage the generations to follow, for 500 + years?

Change the world without changing the Earth.
