In most of the areas where plastic pollution is highly concentrated also the housing situation is poor. People live in slums and have a high demand for durable shelter. The bricks can be used as building blocks to make many modular and circular designs. Each brick is made of 1.5 kilos of 100% recycled plastic with dimensions of 200x100x135mm (LxBxH).Recycling plastic litter into housing turns the environmental problem into a benefit for the local population. It shows the potential and value of circular re-use.
