- Timisoara’s citizens constructing the largest plastic bottle structure
At the initiative of the "Ecostuff Romania" Association, in order to raise awareness and accountability of citizens on the dangers of throwing plastic bottles into river beds and in nature, a partnership project was launched with the aim to build a bridge over The Bega Canal, constructed of steel, that will incorporate plastic bottles (PET). The idea of building a bridge over the Bega made of plastic bottles, based on an architectural design, is a special event attempting to enrol Timisoara in the Records’ Book - the Guinness Book of World Records, as the venue of the largest built structure made of plastic bottles; the target is to use at least 100,000 plastic containers.
