SOCIAL INNOVATION INSIGHTS: RECYCLING FOR HOUSING

Found this amazing social innovation in Nigeria that could be used in places where there is a lack of a well established infrastructure for the recycling process of glass and plastic bottles.  The bottles are creatively used to add value by building houses.  SUPERCOOL!!! I then looked more into this innovation and found various other examples that have done similar initiatives.  This type of reuse is just one example of how we can reduce waste (environmental sustainability) and contribute to social needs.
