When recycled plastic builds houses, people, and community

When recycled plastic builds houses, people, and community

3C makes blocks from pressed PET bottles framed in wood to give them structure to build walls, instead of regular bricks. The plastic in the bottles acts as an insulator and is waterproof, so the waste materials can be reused for the construction of infrastructure. The process of making the blocks uses no and the use of energy is limited, so the environmental impacts associated with their production are minimal.
