These Plastic Bottles Get Packed With Used Plastic To Make Building Blocks

These plastic bottles are packed with used plastic to make reusable building blocks.

They are called Ecobricks by Global Ecobrick Alliance and it’s a great solution to the world’s plastic pollution by giving a second life to something that would otherwise be thrown away–ending up in landfills or the ocean.



The creation process is simple and involves packing plastic bottles to a set density with used, clean and dry plastic to achieve a modular building block that can be used over and over again.

Ecobricks can build anything, from indoor furniture to gardens and parks, to structures — your imagination is the only limit! It allows us to build green spaces that enrich our community and also to remove plastic from the biosphere.

You can also join the movement at ecobricks.org to take personal responsibility for our plastic.
