Providing an eco-friendly alternative to conventional cement bricks
The business model of Eco-Bricks is set on three main principles: education, environmental conservation, and economic development. Collecting and recycling plastic waste as well as manufacturing it into eco-bricks is the company’s core business. Selling recyclable waste to other businesses and offering waste collection services are also core to the business model.
With current production facilities, the enterprise is unable to meet high demand, and is, therefore, looking at expansion opportunities.
