A Buddhist statue is seen decorated by bottle tops at the Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew temple in Thailand's Sisaket province, about 600 km (370 miles) northeast of Bangkok, October 17, 2008. The Thai Buddhist temple has found an environmentally friendly way to utilize discarded bottles to reach nirvana -- using them to build everything in its premises, from a crematorium to shelters and toilets.
