Low Cost Recycled Plastic Shelter Solutions
In 2016, the world generated 242 million tonnes of plastic waste and the global housing shortfall stands at 100 million homeless today. To address this twin issue of plastic waste and homelessness, we have we have developed an innovative solution of building recycled plastic homes. These houses are are fire, water, termite, heat and emission proof with life of over 25 years. Each house of 250 sft consumes nearly 1000 kgs of plastic waste which otherwise would have been incinerated or left at municipal dump yard to leach. The entire house building process provides enhanced fair price to waste pickers.
Our solution of building low cost recyled plastic homes can be replicated globally and is sustainable too because waste is recycled, conserving natural resources and encourages biological diversity enhancing the long-run sustainability of the biosphere. Our solution contribute to all the 17 SDG goals and we are striving towards a circular economy.
