Each year 7,000,000 tons of plastic enters our ocean. An amount equal to one garbage truck of plastic, every single minute. The ocean’s vegetation provides us with about 70% of our oxygen and feeds about 3 billion people. Our solution is to convert plastic waste into simple and versatile building blocks. The plastic for the blocks is collected from the ocean by net boats. The material is then sorted, the pieces are transferred to a hot mold and pressed into the desired shape. The building block units connect to each other by a joint which creates many different shapes and structures intended for external use. Easy to create and easy to build – we offer a simple and versatile recycling option that can be used globally and can be manufactured almost anywhere.
