Enhanced Ecobricking Guidelines for the CoVid-19 Period
Breaking research shows that prolonged viral transmission is possible on plastic surfaces. Ecobricking during the CoVid-19 period can prevent this spread on single-use plastic and save lives. Ecobricking your household plastic can also help reduce the strain on centralized waste management systems and keep plastic from piling up. The GEA has released a white paper and issued enhanced ecobricking guidelines for the CoVid-19 period for personal action.
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.
Build Amazing Things with Ecobricks
Around the world people are using ecobricks to build in a whole new way. From indoor furniture, to gardens and parks, to structures — your imagination is the only limit!
Ecobricking is a Deep Solution for Plastic
Ecobricks are one of the few ways to effectively sequester plastic. Ecobricks remove plastic from the biosphere and from the industrial recycling system. Ecobricks raise ecological consciousness and enable individuals, communities and companies to transition from plastic.
