A Taiwanese Buddhist charity is helping disaster victims stay warm - and eco-friendly - with fleece blankets made from recycled plastic bottles.

The Tzu Chi Foundation, known for performing good works for those in need, dispatched thousands of the eco-blankets to survivors of this year's massive earthquake in Haiti and soon will be shipping more to flood survivors in Pakistan.
