In July 2010, we were fascinated by the project „Plastiki„. A boat made out of 12,500 plastic bottles to make a change. The idea was to draw the attention to the plastic waste in our oceans.  The project received wide attention ( Oprah, NYTimes etc.)  and represents a benchmark in terms of creativity, team spirit and publicity factor for a good cause.  This week we found the story of the „Philippine solar light bottles that offer hope„.  A concept originally credited to the Brazilian Alfredo Moser.

The MyShelter Foundation in the Philippines has even gone one step further to build schools out of plastic bottles and to light them with Alfredo Moser´s idea.

They have also started a competition called „Design against the elements: „Design Against the Elements is a global architectural design competition meant to find a solution to the problems presented by climate change. Spurred by the devastation wreaked in the Philippines by tropical storm Ondoy (Ketsana) and driven by a powerhouse multidisciplinary group of organizations from the private, institutional, and government sectors, the project aims to draw together the most innovative minds in the fields of architecture, design, and urban planning to develop sustainable and disaster-resistant housing for communities in tropical urban settings.“

I believe there is a huge potential for coworkers to get involved. Join our „Waste becomes Resource“ Campaign on CoWorking News. Who knows when we have our first coworking space made out of plastic bottles ;-)?
