I am aware I have been very quiet and I apologise life has been hectic.
Back in March I began something called eco bricking. I was completely new to the whole concept. It has now been a few months and I thought I would let you know how this is going.
Eco bricks are a partial solution to our huge plastic problem.
Over the last few months, I have been part of a small group of people who have been cutting, stuffing and weighing plastic into bottles. In order for these bottles to become building blocks they must be a specific weight based on their capacity.
Today our first creation was formed.
The picture above is a stool. Made of twelve two litre bottles. Its completely stable and I have sat on it. Despite the look it is comfortable to sit on. As a community we are hoping to make a bench out side the Church centre but this needs 1,000 bricks (bottles). This is a long term solution but the amazing thing is these can be re used as many times as we would like.
Please follow the above link to find out more.
I can’t wait to keep you all updated on our progress.
