We envision a Transition from Plastic in our Homes, Communities and Companies to an ever Greener Harmony with Earth’s Cycles.
To raise Ecological Consciousness through the spread of Ecobricking and the transformation of global plastic into local solutions.
Our work is dedicated to our Children, our Children’s Children… and the children of all species, for all time.
We’re an Earth Enterprise focused on solving plastic pollution through the dissemination of the low-tech, educational, open source ecobrick technology. We envision a transition from plastic to ever greener harmony with Earth’s cycles.
Our network of 200+ certified GEA Trainers, share the belief that ‘the problem is always the solution’ and that taking responsibility for our plastic, securing and sequestering it, is fundamental to this shift. We make ecobricks in our homes, and share ecobricking in our communities. We’ve come together as the Global Ecobrick Alliance to develop and maintain the philosophical and technical infrastructure for the global and local ecobrick movements. As an Earth Enterprise our work, processes and finances are grounded in regenerative principles. As the movement spreads, as the manacles of consumption and capital crack, our ecobricks, our gardens, and our examples, are laying the foundation for the beautiful world we all know is possible.
