With the use of recycled plastic bottles and fishing net, affordable housing is being constructed for impoverished communities and disaster areas across India, Nepal and Africa. The construction is done without the use of any steel and allows for building in remote areas with locally sourced or easily transported recycled bottles. The structures created are able to withstand earthquakes up to 9.8 on the Richter magnitude scale.
