EcoInclusión is a non-profit organization that aims to eliminate plastic waste pollution by transforming it into eco-bricks to build infrastructure that helps to improve economic and social conditions in the most vulnerable sections of society. Examples of infrastructure projects built from the ground up using eco-bricks include eco-centers (recycling centers), public libraries, and classrooms.
EcoInclusión designed specific refuse collection programs that involve different society players from, both private and public sectors. The plastic collected can be transformed into eco-construction products (such as bricks).
What is the commYOUnity benefit?
EcoInclusión collects single-use plastic, like a plastic bottle, that is destroying our planet. They use an upcycling process that converts 20 plastic bottles into a single eco-brick that can be used in construction. Based on community needs, the team secures a land lease, designs a building, staffs a team, and then completes the construction project using eco-bricks. They are literally taking plastic out of our trash and oceans and converting it into schools and libraries for commYOUnities in need.
