Built using more than a million beer bottles, this incredible temple in the north-east of Thailand is a novel way to recycle any empties.

Sometimes known as Wat Lan Kuad, or Temple Of A Million Bottles, the temple uses the discarded bottles to construct everything from the crematorium to the toilets.

Altogether there are about 1.5million recycled bottles in the temple, and the monks at there are intending to recycling even more.

‘The more bottles we get, the more buildings we make,’ says Abbot San Kataboonyo.
