Bottles2Bricks is an initiative to collect discarded plastic bottles, fill them with soil or trash, and use them as bricks to create beautiful and useful structures.

Using proven techniques that have been refined over the past 20 years by environmental activist, Andreas Froese, plastic bricks are not only more durable than conventional bricks, they are more environmentally friendly as well.

 

 

And they are free for the taking as streets and rivers in 3rd world countries are literally overflowing with plastic debris.

 

 
And by using plastic waste instead of concrete, we are lowering greenhouse gas emissions and slowing the effects of climate change.
 
 
Bottles2Bricks focuses on poorer, less developed areas, where people might not have access to running water and toilets.  Kids go to school in the open air rather than school buildings.
 
 
In these underserved areas, Bottles2Bricks builds structures that serve the community.  Structures such as schoolhouses, community meeting areas, water tanks, and outhouses.  These structures not only benefit the community, the construction provides jobs for local residents.
 
 
Through the Bottles2Bricks initiative, Andreas Froese traveled to Cameroon, Africa to teach the local people his innovative building methods.  The initial effort involved building a water tank, an outhouse, a retaining wall and a classroom.  Andreas’ trainees will continue this important work throughout Cameroon and other parts of Africa.
 

 

Please help us with this incredible initiative.  Every dollar donated will eliminate 5 plastic bottles from the environment and convert them to bricks which will be used to build a structure in Cameroon, Africa.

 

Last but not least, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your continued support.
