, a somewhat famous "character" living in the Argentinian city of Quilmes can never, ever be accused of being lax when it comes to recycling. For nearly two decades, the dude has been at work on a huge
home made entirely from recycled beer bottles — 6 million of them to be exact — and other trash items.
Lucky for us, Ingenieri is anything but press-shy and is enthusiastic about sharing his unique building techniques and how you too can construct your own recycled beer bottle palace. Check out the video clip below and head on over to Ingenieri's website
(in Spanish) for more.
