Nowadays, almost each and every one of us is familiar with the concept of recycling. However, one man has taken it to another level. That man was Edouard T. Arsenault, who started collecting bottles from his community, and in the spring of 1980, at the age of 66, he began his construction of the Bottle Houses.
Located on Route 11 of the Canadian Prince Edward Island, the Bottle Houses are colorful souvenirs constructed from over 25,000 recycled bottles of various shapes, sizes and colors, cemented together, creating three fantasy-like buildings.
The Six Gabled House measures 20 x 14 feet with three main sections; it was built in 1980 out of approx. 12,000 bottles - between 300-400 bottles per row, using a total of approx. 85 bags of cement over a six month period.
The second building is called The Tavern - a hexagonal structure built in 1982 from approx. 8,000 bottles.
In 1983, approx. 10,000 bottles were transformed to become a magnificent little chapel - the third building - complete with pews and altar. At sunset, a symphony of light and colors streams in from behind the altar, creating a sense of peace and tranquility.
These remarkable structures are open to visitors.
