saturday afternoon at the garbage heap

May 17, 2011

A couple hours spent sifting through the waste piles of the local university last weekend and we emerged with 1,802 plastic bottles.  That is nearly 1/5 the amount of bottles needed to build a house.  To borrow my favorite Ugandan exclamation, “Yaga!”  Spending too much time in garbage heaps turns my train of thought Wall-E apocalyptic.

Stay tuned.  Plastic bottle construction, interior design edition coming soon!

    Well done, Liz. By those metrics, assuming the WALL-E thing becomes a Saturday tradition, you should have enough house materiel by July! And good bottles, too. Some mind-boggling uniformity in that pile.
