  2. 2. Las Vegas now boasts theworld’s largest structure made from recycled beer bottles, according to an article in Inhabitat.com. Known as the Morrow RoyalPavilion, the building is the brainchild of Scott McCombs, a Las Vegas entrepreneur.
  3. 3. The 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility took shape from more than half a million beerbottles that were crushed and reformulated into a composite known as GreenStone. The construction project saved the equivalent ofeight football fields—piled to the top of the goalpost—of landfill space. Nearly every element of the building contains some glass.
  4. 4. To create the GreenStone composite, a local design firm collects beer bottles from Las Vegas Strip hotels. Powerful machines thencrush the glass into miniscule grains, which are then mixed with fly ash, a byproduct of coal power plants. The mixture then dries andhardens in a special mold. GreenStone may beemployed to construct a wide variety of building elements, including columns, mantles, fireplaces, and balustrades.
