A major objective of manufacturing ECO bricks is to create a cleaner less toxic environment while creating products that are needed daily. As global citizens, we all need to be aware of how critical it is to ensure we reuse and recycle as much of our waste as possible. The circular economy can become an integral part of economic growth.
ECO bricks are made by recycling plastic bottles, plastic bags, glass bottles and an equal percentage of cement and creating an environmentally friendly eco-bricks/block. Which is also less expensive than the standard products being sold in the market. By creating a need for waste plastic and glass will mean cleaning up the streets of all the plastic and glass bottles which block drains and cause enormous pollution problems in Africa. Off the back of this business model you could also start other recycling initiatives, like converting waste paper and cardboard into egg trays and environmental friendly pot plant holders, glass bottle sleeves etc – for the waste paper and cardboard equipment see the Zhauns egg tray making machine
It should come as no surprise that there’s more plastic in the ocean than ever before, and plastic production isn’t slowing down. Over 99% of plastics come from chemicals sourced from oil and gas production – contributing greatly to climate change.
There are lots of easy ways you can cut down your single-use plastic, but what should you do with the plastic that you can’t avoid?
ECO bricks are one solution to this growing problem. Making bricks from plastic and glass with an equal percentage of cement creates a cleaner less polluted economy while producing a cheaper alternative to normal bricks and blocks.
What is an ECO brick?
Simply put, an ecobrick is a building block made entirely from waste glass bottles, waste plastic and an equal percentage of cement .
Ecobricks make perfect sense. Taking unwanted waste from our streets and our beaches, oceans and creating a product that is cheaper than the standard product currently in the industry and is needed daily
What are ecobricks used for?
All building and construction projects
What are the advantages of ECO bricks?
The biggest advantage of ECO bricks is that they take something that would otherwise have a negative impact on the environment, and turn it into something that benefits local communities.
Are ECO bricks good for the environment?
The whole idea of an ECO brick is to reuse single use or non-recyclable plastics and waste glass bottles and rather than letting them end up in landfill, or worse, the ocean. When plastics are just thrown-away they breakdown over time into microplastics that contaminate the environment. Instead of this, make eco-friendly bricks.
Here are just some of the items you can put in your brick:
- Plastic bags
- Crisp/chip packets
- Plastic Straws
- Please bottles
- Glass bottles
By starting your ECO brick business today you can benefit yourself, your community and the environment.
