Heineken Bottle Bricks

So this is a little bit like the Heineken speaker crates, but kind of cooler. These bottles were designed to double as bricks (after being emptied). According to Inhabitat, the eco-friendly bottles were made in 1963 and were referred to as WABO, or world bottles. The project was started by brewer Alfred Heineken after a trip to the Caribbean where he found beaches littered with bottles and a lack of housing. The goal was to promote recycling and provide building materials, one ice-coled Heineken at a time. Although the project was abandoned, there are a couple structures made from the bottles.
