Build playgrounds using Ecobricks

Playground built out of Ecobricks

An Ecobrick is a reusable building block created by packing clean and dry used plastic into a plastic bottle to a set density. Ecobricks can make modular units, furniture, and earthen gardens and structures. The Global Ecobrick Alliance promotes ecobricking as a collaboration powered technology, grounded in regenerative principles.

Only 9% of the plastic produced is actually recycled.



  • Easy for everyone to take part
  • Gives single-use plastic a second life


  • Does not encourage reducing purchase and use of single-use plastic
  • May not be a successful long-term building material
  • Long-term will have to be disposed of
