Inspiration from Buddhist monks
We just heard about this wonderful example of recycling: using Heineken beer bottles. Apparently about 50 years ago the Heineken Company said they were going to reshape their beer bottles to make them usable as building blocks. Unfortunately it never happened.
That's the bad news. The good news is that a bunch of monks from Thailand's Sisaket province took matters into their own hands and collected a million bottles to build the Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew temple. The results are absolustely amazing and should act as an inspiration to us all.
