According to the environment ministry, in the year 2019-2020, India generated 3.4 million metric tonnes of plastic waste. In the wake of such statistics and only a small volume of plastic being recycled, ecobricks can act as a resource to reuse plastic for the greater good.
We will continue our campaign to fight plastic pollution/ ocean pollution.
History of Ecobrick?
Ecobricks were first made in number and utilized on a community scale in Guatemala in 2003 with Susana Heisse’s project Pura Vida Atitlan. Since then numerous projects have been started all around the globe.
