Extraordinary man builds 25 plastic bottle homes for refugees in Algeria

Discarded plastic bottles comprise energy efficient homes in the desert, thanks to 27-year-old Sahrawi refugee Tateh Lehbib Breica. He was born and raised in the refugee camp where he’s now constructing homes for others. These eco-friendly recycled homes are built to endure harsh desert conditions.
