Trash Turned into Homes

Necessity is the mother of invention   -Nargis Latif
 These words echo true as Nargis saw the need for more housing in Pakistan and a better use of waste.  She collects local shredded waste and transforms them into silver homes!  These homes are completely made of "bricks of waste".  The shredded waste is packaged tight inside a shiny wrapping and is stacked along side other bricks.  The homes can be built within hours as the process is very simple.  Narigs Latif has even built pools out of the waste.  Her idea shows us all that there can be many ways to reuse waste if we put our minds to it.  Check out her homes below in this CNN interview.
