The Solution to Plastic Pollution is Here...

It's as Simple as Packing a Bottle with Plastic...

To make a building block that can be used over and over...

Ecobricks can make Lego Modules...

Ecobricks can build structures and walls...

With Ecobricks we can make Green Community Spaces...

So that we can get back to living in Harmony with the Ecosystems around us.

When plastics are littered, burned or dumped, they poison the Earth, Air, and Water. When we save, segregate and pack plastics into bottles, we can make building blocks that can be reused over and over again. Together we can build green spaces that enrich our community and environment.

Ibu Sofi couldn’t bear to throw away her plastic and have it dumped in the local river, so she saved it for three years. Then she met the Ecobrick… and she has been packing ever since!  Ibu Sofi has gone on to teach hundreds of folks in her city how to go zero waste!

An Ecobrick is a plastic bottle packed solid with non-biological waste to make a re-useable building block.  You know all that plastic that you normally throw out or recycle?  It’s actually perfect for making an Ecobrick!  Best of all, you don’t need any fancy machines, special skills, engineers or even politicians to get started.

Jo Stodgel | Santa Fe, USA

“In America, we might have lots of recycling, but that doesn’t mean the plastic goes away.”  Jo has thus been passionately ecobricking his plastic for the last 5 years.  Jo leads Ecobrick trainings around America and Africa.

The Global Ecobrick Alliance is a network of passionate ecobrickers around the world.  Through Ecobricks.org we share our stories, techniques, experiments and insights.  Just like you, we want to see the end of plastic pollution– and ecobricking is the best way we have found how.  Our trainers are available to do trainings all over the world.
