Turning Plastic Waste into Building Materials

There has been a distinct practice to reduce and try to eliminate single-use plastics, which involves turning plastic waste into ecobricks.

Personal use sized commercial water bottles are used to collect waste, and are filled with plastic film from traditional sources such as empty crisp packets, food wrap, plastic bags and many other sources to achieve a specified weight and density.

These bottles (eco bricks) are stored until a set load is achieved then taken to a specialist recycling organisation which turns them into plastic furniture and building materials.
