The Wat Pa Maha Chedio Kaew temple in Bangkok, Thailand is easily one of the most ambitious bottle recycling projects in the world.

Right down to its toilets, the remarkable temple is literally made entirely from old glass bottles. In fact, it is estimated that over 1.5 million recycled bottles exist within the Wat Pa Maha Chedio Kaew temple, and the monks within it are constantly looking to add more.

Implications - When it comes to building a new space, companies need to look at incorporating eco-friendly designs. By using recyclable materials such as bottles to create the space, companies will be talked about in various media outlets as it is innovative and eco-chic.
