Use plastic waste to build foster houses

Oscar Mendez, co-founder of Conceptos Plasticos explains this innovative idea.

The architecture graduate has changed the whole way houses in Columbia were built with a simple but bright idea. Transforming plastic waste into building materials. Those bricks are affordable and durable while environment friendly.

Besides, they are as easy to assembled as Lego Toys. It allows the populations to be able to help in the building and maintenance process.

Give them 5 days and they will build a 40m² house. They have already built more than 1400 m² built of housing for more than 400 people. And now their goal is to provide for the 1,200,000 houses missing in Columbia.
