While the temple is no longer standing, the trend of upcycling plastic bottles that inspired the construction shows no signs of slowing down. Other recent examples of PET bottle creativity include the “Watershed” [3]plastic bottle installation, the Plastiki boat [4], and this recycled bottle greenhouse [5]. As plastic bottle use continues to grow around the world, don’t be surprised if PET bottle structures become increasingly commonplace.
