It depends upon the individual requirements and if people are below poverty line then it is difficult for them. Also the increase in urbanization has developed the non-renewable products like plastic bottle. This products can be used in construction. So that the Eco-friendly construction can be done forming the suitable thermal resistance to structure. Plastic bottles are generally used to store different material for consumption and for many other uses. When bottles are incinerated the huge amount of toxic fume are produced which are harmful to nature. Recycling is only survival option because only PET bottles can be recycled all other bottles are discarded and only 1 out of 5 bottles are sent to the recycle bin. So this tends to need for constructive use of waste plastic bottles in environment friendly way. This paper consist of use of plastic bottle as sustainable material i.e. as a substance similar to brick in nature, which is filled with compacted sand, fly ash and combination of both, different testing on them comparative to bricks and economic advantages over the traditional brick so that idea of safe and Ecofriendly construction can be incorporated and a wise step towards environment saving can be take place.
