Look what we’ve discovered! A convenience food without plastic…a rare treat for us!
And as promised – some information about ecobricks!
What is an ecobrick?
An ecobrick is a plastic bottle packed with non-biodegradable waste to a set density to create a reusable building block.
What are ecobricks used for?
Ecobricks can be used for making furniture, walls and buildings.
‘Although you can build structures with them, 99% of ecobricks are being used for small home, school and community creations. We focus on tiny applications, like furniture models, Lego, and especially gardens. https://www.familiesonline.co.uk/local/shropshire/in-the-know/use-your-un-recycable-plastic-to-make-an-eco-brick-and-save-the-environment
How to get involved?
‘ We’ve worked hard to put together our GoBrik help to help with community collaborations. GoBrik lets you log your ecobricks and work on projects together with your community. You can join a community to work with, and you can see a map of communities that need ecobricks or that are have too many. ‘https://www.ecobricks.org/dropoff/

My sister has actually been to an ecobrick workshop! I’m hoping she might give some information in my comments box!
