Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.

And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:

“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”

To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.

The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.

Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?

I want a plastic bottle house

Wow.

I am starting to realize that it is just not that serious. Like why are we fighting so hard to preserve something that has been watered down and no longer has any value? People are risking their freedom, finances, and membership in the organization to participate in a dying process. Am I…

Yup, still accurate!

Almost every black woman is looking for her “strong black man”, but is your “strong black man” looking for you? Black women are so dedicated to black men; we will have thoughts of what it may be like to date a man of another race, but never act upon it. Or if we do date someone outside our…

Gee...Thanks Dad!

twotonedsoul:

I think we have heard of the consequences of a young black woman not having a father in her life…of how she longs for male attention. We even allow her the right to blame her promiscuity on her lack of a positive male presence in her life. We let her claim that she may be a people pleaser…
