Oscar Andres Mendez Gerardino, a young entrepreneur, wanted to provide decent housing for the homeless while reducing waste plastic. He then founded a Colombian enterprise that recycles plastic and transforms it into construction materials that are used to provide high-quality, safe, low-cost housing.
They process and mold used plastics and rubbers into bricks similar to a lego piece then assemble them into high-quality, low-cost houses for people in need.
It takes 5 days for four people to assemble a 430 square feet house.
So far, they have built 16,145 square feet of houses and are planning on building more each year. Bringing positive change to people and the environment all at the same time.
