Stone Age, Ice Age, Plastic Age
DINOSAURS WERE EXTINGUISHED BY A METEOR
HUMANITY WILL BE EXTINGUISHED BY PLASTIC
If fish eat plastic, that means, we do too!
Planet Earth has 74% Water, 26% Land, and only 8% is arable.
Population 1978- 4.3 Billion, 2016- 7.3Billion, 2050- 10Billion
Global warming = Sea rise
Sea rise = Less land
Less land = Less agriculture
Less agriculture = Less food
More peoples = More consumers.
More consumers = More plastic in our oceans.
More plastic in our oceans = More fish die.
More fish die = Less food.
Less food = Less humans.
60% of Humans depend on the sea to eat.
If we kill the fish, we kill ourselves too.
BE CREATIVE, HELP THE PLANET…..REUSE or RECYCLE
“CHANGE THE WORLD, WITHOUT CHANGING THE EARTH”
Why live in a plastic bottle house?
Average humans can consume 15 or more drinks in plastic bottles a month. If you were born after 1978, and live until 80 years old, you will leave behind a minimum of 14,400 plastic bottles on this planet. These bottles take hundreds of years to break down into tiny pieces of plastic, never to completely disappear. Most of the waste is consumed by fish and birds, which has shortened their lifespans greatly.
If you live in a two story plastic bottle house of 100 square meters or 1,000 square feet per floor, then your house will be built reusing 14,000 plastic bottles. These recycled bottles could neutralize the negative effect of your passage on this planet, and move closer to leaving only your "footprints".
The re-use of its core materials allows, the Plastic Bottle Village to build homes in a fraction of the time, and at a huge savings in the cost of re-construction, compared to the traditional materials used locally.
The Plastic Bottle Village is an
eco-residential community set into the heart
of the islands, jungle interior.
The Village is designed to co-exist with nature, and the lush tropical jungle. The community is located on some of Isla Colon’s most prime real estate. Residents of this exclusive community will be ensured positive R.O.I on their home/land purchase, while doing their part to change the world in a positive direction.
The community is nestled into 83 acres of established jungle that stretches from the sea, and future boat launch on the west side of the island, to the center of the islands main road, to Boca del Drago’s famous starfish beach.
Over the three phases of development, The Village will consist of around 120 homes/lots, as well as a small boutique, eco-lodge, that will mesh with the community’s fruit, vegetable, and herb garden. The Village will utilize natural settings to create green zones, that will house a yoga-exercise pavilion, hiking trails, and small manicured mini-parks for barbeques, and out door gatherings.
The secured community rests on beautiful hilltops and small valleys that have fresh water streams rolling through it. There is also a plethora of flora and fauna to enjoy and explore.
The Village is home to revolutionary techniques in eco-building, and utilizes recycled plastic bottles as its main insulation inside of its concrete walls. This style of home building takes a green approach and the owners of the properties will share a conscious, earth friendly shift in their way of living. We will be living inside what we have consumed and thrown away, and will re-construct those materials into modern, stylish, and quality built residencies. The homes are also earthquake resistant, and very cool in temperature, so there is no need for air conditioning. This will aid in conserving energy for The Village, which is a solar friendly community.
We are “changing the world, without changing the Earth, one home at a time.”
