2.1 previewArchived Versions of The Vision Ecobrick Guide Version 2.1

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 reasearch 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 and illustrated pages so that others could benefit from all our mistakes and discoveries. The VEB Guide is ideal for teachers, principals, community leaders, students organizers and anyone passionate about transcending pollution once and for all.
