Great Idea for Green Weddings!

2 comments
In 1963, the geniuses at Heineken designed a beer bottle called the WOBO (World Bottle). Envisioned as "the Brick that Holds Beer" this bottle could be recycled directly into a brick for building.


These could be used for buildings that would be highly energy efficient and great to look at. Mr. Heineken's idea came after a trip to the islands as a solution to the waste disposal problems and the lack of affordable housing. The idea was too soon and nobody got behind it. In 1975 it was reintroduced again without much success. There is just one building in Holland created with these ingenious bottles.

With all the beer being consumed at weddings alone, isn't it time to retry this? The world is a lot more environmentally conscious than in 1975 when I was studying environmental biology.
