Noted--if there is a way for this to be done making it better for the environment then it needs to be done. What needs to be done first though is for the government to pass stricter laws on what is being done to the environment by the materials being used that contain toxic chemicals and such. Blessings to all who love and care for a better world and Mother Earth.

Why not? People used to use camel dung and bison 'chips' for bricks to build homes from, it's not much different. East Germany even built a car whose body was composed of cast plastic re-inforced with scrap cloth and cardboard; the Trabant featured a half liter (later a 600cc through 1.1 liter) two stroke (oil in the gas) engine and was light enough to get acceptable gas mileage from it.
