The Solution to Plastic 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...
Ecobrick Earth building
Ecobricks can make Green Community Spaces...
So that we can get back to living in Harmony with the Ecosystems around us.
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 remove plastic from the biosphere. Together we can transition from plastic to ever greener harmony with Earth’s cycles.
What is an Ecobrick?
An Ecobrick is a reusable building block created by packing clean and dry used plastic into a plastic bottle to a set density. Ecobricks enable us to take personal responsibility for our plastic.
