When Donald Thomson holds a bottle of Agua Costa Rica in his hands, he sees much more than a bottle of water.
The home builder, music school founder and businessman sees the potential to take what some consider to be an environmental liability — the plastic bottle — and turn it into an asset that can change quality of life for people down the street and around the world.
Thomson, president of a company called Center for Regenerative Design & Collaboration, is rolling out a roof building system that relies on recycled Agua Costa Rica brand water bottles he developed.
