People in glass houses
I think some monks in Thailand may deserve a prize for most ambitious upcycling. According to a story in yesterday's Metro, they began collecting bottles in 1984 and kept on until they had created the Temple of a Million Bottles. Inside, there are mosaics made of bottle caps. "Besides being eco-friendly," writes Jo Steele, "the disused bottles don't fade, provide good light and are easy to clean."
