This toolkit is developed in collaboration with its Originator with the purpose to enable as many people as possible to take action for housing and social inclusion.
About the project
The 3C Eco-house is a project that is changing the game of sustainable building materials and access to housing, while employing women and young people from underserved communities in the process. The project makes it possible to turn any plastic waste into eco-blocks for building full functioning houses. Their method doesn’t require any water or electricity, and it’s suitable for unskilled labourers.

More about the project
Some places in the world face many challenges simultaneously. Building adequate housing is expensive and time consuming. At the same time most cities around the world don’t have recycling systems in place for all kinds of plastic so it can end up littering streets and in the environment. Minority and poor communities are most affected by these challenges because they are often politically underrepresented.
