Hug It Forward Builds Guatemala School Using Empties And Not Bricks

School in Guatemala Built from plastic bottles - Hug It Forward.Hug It Forward, a non-profit group based in Guatemala, has just built a new school for less than $10,000 by using empty plastic bottles as construction material. It’s one of 12 schools built by Hug it Forward using collected plastic bottles and some low-technology developed by PureVida. From Good:

The plastic bottles are stuffed with trash, tucked between supportive chicken wire, and coated in layers of concrete to form walls between the framing. The bottles make up the insulation, while more structurally sound materials like wood posts are used for the framing.

By collecting the empty plastic bottles that go into the building of their school, the kids will not only get an education but they’ll also get a lesson in Jubbling.
