Plastic lasts extremely long, and can survive a multitude of weather conditions, from extremely hot summers to cold weather. That’s why recycled plastic is an ideal material for construction. Our #ecofluencer Jenni visited the Pituq Community Foundation in Lombok. With the help of local schools they teach children about waste management and recycling by collecting plastic waste in order to reuse it to make #ecobricks for construction projects. An #ecobrick is a plastic bottle packed with used (un-recyclable) plastic to a set density to create a reusable building block. Ecobricks are applied to make modular furniture, garden spaces, walls and structures. They are an easy and cost effective way to recycle plastics as basically anyone can make them.
Jenni is our ecofluencer with an unconditional love for our 🌊... and potatoe chips. She might not be much taller than a 🐣, but that doesn’t stop her from reaching for her goals, one little waddle at a time if needed. When she isn’t 🎥 about ocean conversation, she loves to step dance around the world or dives through the sky 🌤 Her biggest adventure yet was swimming with 🐋 sharks in Australia.
