Beer bottle temple Thailand. Some years ago Heineken Beer company looked at reshaping its beer bottle to be useful as a building block. It never happened, but Buddhist monks from Thailand’s Sisaket province took matters into their own hands and collected over a million bottles to build the Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew temple.

This incredible temple in the north-east of Thailand is a novel way to recycle any empties. The resident Buddhist monks at the Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew complex encourage local authorities to deposit any used bottles at the temple which they then use to build  the temple and new structures.
