Recycled Glass Bottle Buddhist Monastery

What can a group of rural monks hundreds of miles outside of Bangkok do to help the environment and build a beautiful temple all in a single stroke of architectural genius? Local residents helped these religious devotees collect over a million colored glass bottles that were then used to create everything outside and within the monastic complex – from the walls and roofs to the decorative interior mosaics of this amazing building of worship and meditation. Glistening in the light and arranged in patterns one would hardly know from a distance that the structure was built from anything but the finest of custom-made materials. (Source)
