Can Shipping Containers provide much needed housing for the million displaced Haitians?
Why not? Shipping containers are cheap, mobile and highly recyclable. They’re pre-insulated and already have hardwood floors. They’re strong, resistant to mold, termites and fire and above all they’re plentiful. Our trade deficit has left hundreds of thousands of empty shipping containers piling up in storage yards all over the country.
The City of Los Angeles might gladly donate hundreds of thousands of these containers to Haiti. Please watch the videos and tell me what you think of this idea!
