Sustainable.co.za proudly partners with Ecobrick Exchange
We are very pleased to announce that we have partnered up with the EcoBrick Exchange. This is one of our favourite initiatives and is close to our hearts.
About EcoBrick Exchange
The EcoBrick Exchange (EBE) is an eco-centric company that facilitates the construction of preschools in underprivileged communities. This is done by using EcoBricks (plastic waste compressed into PET-bottles). This is a highly insulating building material that is water-, fire- and even bullet-proof. Their programmes empower individuals to address the shortage of quality education facilities, implement sustainable waste management systems and raise environmental awareness.
How can you become involved?
It's really very simple. Collect, clean and dry all non-recyclable plastic rubbish and compress it into a 2L Bottle with a stick or suitable instrument. Pack it tightly so that it can't be squished. Once it is ready, simply drop it off at our shop.
We love this idea so much that we have decided to give a 5% discount voucher to the person that brings in 20 Eco-Bricks at any one time.
Start making a difference
If we can collect enough eco bricks, we can build a school! Keep an eye out for our Mandela Day Campaign where we will be challenging South Africa to make a difference. Watch this space.
