    I don't know. I thought this was cool. Thought I would share. Guy used to sift through garbage to try to feed his family. Now he makes his living conducting tours of his home, which is made mostly from plastic bottles.

    He could never have done that in America, where the rich would have prevented him from even attempting this.

    The Kochs would have burned him out.

    Cute, but what's the durability on that joint? Can you heat and cool it? Electricity? Plumbing? Security?

    I am not sure about any of that. Just saw what you saw.

    Here is another video I saw at BBC last month that I thought was neat. Guy taught people in the Philippines how to make daytime lighting that is as good as a lightbulb from bottles filled with water. It's so simple, but really brilliant.

    Does he still conserve gas by riding a horse around the city?

    I'm pretty sure he uses used cooking oil. He was eco before eco was cool.
