Costa Rica News – Plastic that is not otherwise recyclable will soon be used to produce concrete blocks and other construction materials.
Bottles, lids, straws and plastic packaging, as well as stereophone can be used.
One Ecoblock will contain the equivalent of 11 600 ml plastic bottles. Grupo Pedregal will take responsibility for marketing the products nationwide. The company can process around 40 tons of plastic daily in its production centers.
Those who deliver plastic goods to be used will receive Ecolones. This is a virtual currency that allows the user to obtain discounts on products, services and experiences for simply bringing recyclables to an authorized center.
This plan will reduce pollution and transform it into a value generating product as well as reward those who donate, creating a circular economy and sustainable solution that can ideally be used worldwide.
