Here’s an idea! So many bottles dumped in Fiji every year and thatching is also now hard to come by as the land is cleared and unsustainable farming practice leaves little room for growing traditional building materials.
Thatch can be made from plastic bottles cut into long strips – this man has made a machine, but it is really quick to do it by hand. My son loves doing it just for fun when I am trying to make other useful stuff from the bottles – he does one in about a minute.
Perfect for tropical climates.
