An Ecobrick is a plastic bottle stuffed solid with non-biological waste to create a reusable building block. Ecobricks are used to make modular furniture, garden spaces and full scale buildings such as schools and houses. Ecobricks are a collaboration powered technology that provides a zero-cost solid waste solution for individuals, households, schools and communities. Ecobricks are an exciting way that we can take action today to stop pollution and to start envisioning a healthier way of living with our environment.
Ecobricks are designed to be an indefinitely reusable, cradle to cradle, building block. They are made by stuffing non-biodegradeble plastic waste into a plastic drinking bottle. Once packed solid, ecobricks can be used to build green spaces for our community, furniture for our homes, and heck… even our homes.
This site and our Ecobrick Guides have been crafted to help you get started ecobricking, train others to ecobrick, and to empower your community or shcool with ecobrick projects. These resources are years of research, experimentation and hands on work around the world through the Global Ecobrick Alliance.
