Housing Made of non-Biodegradable Plastic

April 11th, 2016

pakistan___operationpakistan.wordpress__credit___bldg_made_of_non_biodegradable_plasticAn NGO (non-governmental organization) set up by Nargis Latif in Pakistan recycles non-biodegradable plastic for making temporary shelters or housing units. Gul Bahao ( “Pour or spread the roses.” ) represents a low cost alternative to tents and other prefabricated housing units, according to what operationpakistan.wordpress tells MHProNews.

The plastic waste is collected in Karachi where it is made into blocks. The silver coating reflects sunlight, keeping the interior cool. Uses include warehouses, exhibition space, marriage halls, farm houses, mobile camps, labor housing, and emergency housing in cases of earthquakes and floods.

Lfatif said she has not received any assistance from the government in the 22 years she has been making these units, only assistance from those who see the benefit of this low level technology.

While these shelters have withstood the test of harsh conditions, more money is needed for further research and development. ##
