Did you know that you can make houses out of plastic bottles? By filling them with sand, and molding them together with mud or cement, the walls created are actually bullet proof, fire proof, and will maintain an comfortable indoor temperature of 64 degrees in the summer time.
And it’s not like there is any shortage on used plastic bottles out there. Here are some statistics from treehugger.com:
“The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day which is 47.3 Billion plastic bottles per year. About 80% of those plastic bottles end up in a landfill!”
To build a two bedroom, 1200 square foot home, it takes about 14,000 bottles.
The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! That’s just over 3.35 million homes, the same number of homeless people in America.
Many people in third world countries have taken up building homes out of plastic bottles, from Africa to Asia. Perhaps the trend will catch on in America and all of those bottles will stop ending up in the landfills. Wouldn’t they be better off housing the homeless? Kinda like all those empty houses scattered all over the country?

stop doing things in unison you adorable little jerKs
A thing I love about Gravity Falls is the twins’ personalities are so distinct, you sometimes forget they’re twins. Yet at the same time they will often do ‘twin’ things like move or talk in unison. They’re their own characters yet they are also a set, and that healthy balance is a great characterization.
Not the heroes we thought we needed but the heroes we really needed all along
this vine is better than all of paranormal activity
too much can happen in six seconds. we have gone too far.
how long did it take you to notice the second dude from the right licking the other guy’s shoulder
I don’t often rant, but I was looking through the comments on the new Monster Hunters series, and this is the shit that some people are commenting. Have you assholes forgotten that these are REAL PEOPLE you’re making fun of. If you think someone’s annoying, you don’t have to publicly share that. Kim and Hannah are the nicest people, and some of you are even saying you don’t want to watch the video because they’re girls. Goodness me, they’re female!
You should be ashamed of yourselves for saying this, and I’m not censoring your usernames because you put this in a public place.
It frustrates me to no end as well. Kim is talented, clever, and hard working. Even Lewis has said she works “maybe too hard”, and given how much he works on his company, being noticed in this fashion saying something.
I honestly think a lot of Kim’s haters are people who are over a threshold of xenophobic racism and predictable online sexism. Her videos are great, her editing is some of the best in the group, and her enthusiasm is off the charts.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.
YOU’RE NOT MILKING THE BEES FOR THE HONEY
YOU’RE NOT EVEN HURTING THEM
OR THEIR HOME
HUMAN BEINGS EATING HONEY IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS PREVENTING BEE EXTINCTION YOU STUPID FUCKING FUCKTRUMPET!
Sam Pepper is sorry 🙌
