Ecomak Recyclers

Ecomak transforms plastic waste in communities and cities into eco-friendly construction bricks.


Ecomak Recyclers is a social enterprise developing eco-friendly, durable, and long-lasting construction bricks and blocks from post-consumer plastic waste using a chemical-free and energy-saving extrusion technology, an affordable alternative to conventional bricks solving the challenges of plastic pollution, unemployment, poverty, and indecent housing. Our construction bricks and blocks are 2 times stronger than the conventional bricks, have zero breakages once used, require low maintenance, do not rot, are termite resistant, and are 42% cheaper than the conventional bricks.
