Robert Bezeau is the founder of the Plastic Bottle Village, an eco-residential community set into the heart of Isla Colon, Panama. Over the three phases of development, The Village will consist of around 120 homes/lots, as well as a small boutique, eco-lodge, that will mesh with the community’s fruit, vegetable, and herb garden. The Village will utilize natural settings to create green zones, that will house a yoga-exercise pavilion, hiking trails, and small mini-parks for barbeques, and outdoor gatherings. With walls made out of plastic bottles fixed into steel frames, living in a two story plastic bottle house of 100 square meters or 1,000 square feet per floor means reusing 14,000 plastic bottles.
