Plastic, the Environment and Ecobricks (NEW version!)
A Presentation for introducing ecobricks to your community or group.
“Why Ecobrick?” “What’s the big deal about plastic anyway?” “Why shouldn’t I just burn it in the ditch?” This presentation hits the big questions about plastic head on! Our Ecobrick trainers use it to introduce ecobricking to groups, schools, and organization. The presentation sparks discussion on plastic, explores the perils of plastic, then lays out the fundamentals of proper Ecobricking. Print as a booklet, or project as a PowerPoint – this is exactly what you need to get started right with ecobricking.
Ketika plastik dibuang, dibakar atau ditimbun, mereka meracuni bumi, udara dan air. Ketika kita menyimpan, memilah, dan ‘membungkus dalam botol, kita bisa membuat batako ecobricks yang bisa digunakan kembali. Bersama kita dapat membangun kawasan yang hijau yang akan menyuburkan lingkungan dan masyarakat.

Archived Vision Ecobrick Guide
The first major version of the Vision Ecobrick Guide (version 2.1) was released in early 2014. It was developed over two years of extensive research and application with dozens, then hundreds of schools in the Northern Philippines. The guide presents the urgent environmental context of Ecobricks, the power of Ecobricks to raise consciousness, and the techniques to both pack and build. Hundreds of hours of experimentation, observation and conceptual development were put into seventeen simple illustrated pages so that others can benefit from all our mistakes and discoveries. The VEB Guide is ideal for teachers, principals, community leaders, students organizers, and anyone who is passionate about transcending pollution once and for all.
