This temple is making me thirsty

A group of Buddhist monks from Thailand have taken recycling to a whole new level and built this gorgeous temple made entirely of around 1.5 million empty beer bottles. Even the toilets and crematorium are constructed out of the bottles!

From far away you would never guess it was made of empty Heineken (green) and Chang (brown) beer bottles, but in this close up of the interior you can see how perfectly aligned they are.

It's a pretty innovate way to clean up pollution! You can see more images at TreeHugger here.
