Eco Bricks Just Might Help Save the Planet and YOU Can Start Yours Today!

Written by on February 14, 2019 in Conscious Living, Eco-Friendly, Inspirational with 2 Comments

A small way to help with any community or town’s recycling challenges is a fantastic new thing (I’ve recently discovered via my facebook feed) called ECO BRICKS.

“I’ve tried it and it works. I only put out one household trash bag every 2-3 weeks now! Isn’t that amazing?”

It’s So Easy!

You just twist and stuff all your rubbish and put it into a plastic bottle. This includes all that foil (crisp packets, chocolate wrappers, sweet wrappers — generally annoying bits of debris that you just hate binning), plastic bags (from cling film and pizza packaging to your pets kibble packets), general bits and bob’s like bottle rims, plastic string and tags (that animals often swallow).

Pack it tightly and you can fit about 1-2 weeks worth of waste in one bottle!

How To Get it Compact

Take a rod or stick and squish the trash to compact it so you can fit more in and get a solid ‘brick’. When your bottle is full you can use them as bricks to make raised planters, etc. Check out this article: Eco Bricking – Creating Sustainable Communities.

Or you can use them for craft projects with your children — they make great pigs, rockets and whatever else your imagination can conjure (I made this cute little critter — to your left — using these bottles, plastic spoons and a lick of acrylic paint. Be sure to seal them with a strong outdoor varnish if you’re going to put them in your garden).

Try it out on the next school break — I’m positive that you and your kids will enjoy the process and you get to make some cool garden/bedroom ornaments!

Below are my craft students (check out the Net Vir Pret Organisation I work with — they are doing some wonderful things) with their ECO BRICK pig creations — aren’t they fabulous?

   

It’s just small things like these eco-bricks that we can do individually to make a real difference in the world.

I hope you will become an eco-warrior!
