Plastic Bottle Village is changing the World with 5 cents,
by introducing a new initiative in finding solutions to the invasion of PET plastic bottles on Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro, Panama.
The disadvantage of living on an island, is that all the consumer goods that arrive by FERRY on the island are packaged into plastic. The goods are consumed, and the plastic packaging stay trapped on the island. NEVER YOU SEE THE FERRY RETURN WITH PLASTIC.
This island receive more than 100,000 visitors per year that stay on average 5 days. You now have 500,000 visitor days. If each visitor consumes only two drinks a day, you have 1 MILLION plastic bottles a year left behind on a small island.
Because most visitors will not drink water from the public service, one of the most consumed products, are drinks in PET plastic bottles.
What can be done with these bottles?
*Have them transported out of the island, at an expensive cost?
*Burry them on the island and contaminated the soil for thousands of years?
*Burn them on the island and create a highly toxic fume?
Plastic Bottle Village is proud to introduce a solution….
When a visitor buys a drink, he also buys a plastic bottle. He is the owner of that bottle. He has a responsibility of what will happen to his bottle once he has consumed it.
The consumer was left without any alternative before, but now he has a solution to reduce his carbon footprint on the island.
Our solution is the CARBON FOOTPRINT STICKER.
The main reason why a plastic bottle is found lying on a beach, on the side of the road, in the nature, or even floating in the sea, is because nobody will pick-up that bottle because there is no $ incentive to do so.
A visitor can now receive 25 carbon footprint stickers, in exchange of a small voluntary contribution to our cause.
Once a visitor has finish consuming a beverage, and apply a carbon footprint sticker on the bottle, it give someone an incentive to pick-up the bottle and exchange it for food.
The bottles will be re-use as building material in structures for homes, and the visitors will leave the island knowing that he/she reduced his/her carbon footprint during his/her stay on our beautiful paradise island, of Bocas del Toro, Panama..
GIVE PLASTIC A SECOND CHANCE....

PLASTIC FOR FOOD PROGRAM
Plastic Bottle Village is proud to announce that as of December 1st, 2017, PET bottles with CARBON FOOTPRINT STICKERS can be exchanged for food at:
SUPERMARKET TOTO, 4th Street, Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro. Panama
NOTE: FOOD ONLY, (NO ALCOHOL, NO TOBACCO)
Special Thanks to the owners of TOTO who accepted to assist us in this World Premiere experience of exchanging plastic for food. I want to ask all the peoples living in Bocas, to encourage TOTO in there new ECO-Supermarket.
Plastic Bottle Village offer food in exchange of drinking plastic bottles with CARBON FOOTPRINT STICKERS.
For each PET bottle with a $0.05 sticker, returned to TOTO, we will allow an equal value credit coupon to shop for food.
Example: 50 bottles with the stickers are brought to TOTO supermarket, a $2.50 coupon will be given to the person, to buy the same value in food inside TOTO supermarket.
This will give less fortunate families the opportunity to obtain food, and by the same token educate them about recycling, and create an incentive to search for PET bottles with stickers to bring to the Plastic Bottle Village supermarket to be exchanged for food.
Hoping we will find people on beaches, forests, everywhere, on the hunt for plastic bottles with stickers, because it will be a new means of survival. They will be able to buy food with plastic bottles with stickers, and these plastic bottles will be reused to build structures for homes.
Plastic Bottle Village hope that visitors of the island, will open their heart, and obtain CARBON FOOTPRINT STICKERS to give to less fortunate families witch will be looking for PET bottles to apply the stickers, and exchanged for food.

LEADERS OF THE WORLD: Reaching out to humans that control the World. Billions of $ are spent looking for new planets that can be livable, while we already have one, that just need to be cleaned. Humans can live up to 100 years, plastic will need more than 500 years to completely disappear from our planet. Does that make any sense? Only 30% of all the plastic made is recycled....
We will kill all the sea life with the plastic, if we don't educate and change the way humans consume.

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..
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.”
