Too good to be true? – Zach

I came across this seemingly perfect building material called the polli-brick. It’s essentially a remoulded PET bottle that is hyper-durable, sustainable, inexpensive, lightweight, and hurricane resistant. And more!  The process is this: plastic bottles are essentially remoulded so that they fit into each other in a honeycomb-like fashion (this is all done on-site) – they are then fit together to build a wall.  Polli-Bricks insulate and even have the potential to absorb solar energy.  Sounds like the perfect building material, really.  I’m skeptical, yet at the same time very hopeful…
