Polli-bricks

Finally, a realistic use for recycled plastic

Finally, a realistic use for recycled plastic

If people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, can people who live in plastic houses throw whatever they want? Actually, yes, if the house is made of polli-bricks, which hold seven world records in green construction. The polli-brick is a self-interlocking brick that can be used for a variety of purposes, from lighting design to the walls of actual, livable buildings. Its honeycomb-like structure provides thermal and sound retention and it’s made from plastic recycled with a minimal carbon footprint through a “mature PET bottle recycling and manufacturing process.” It’s being hailed as “the world’s lightest, movable, breathable environmental miracle,” and it looks good too. Still skeptical? Check out the Fashion Pavilion at the Taipei International Expo later this year (or just look at these pictures).
