Low cost housing – made of recycled plastic

Low cost housing in Mexico is being created out of collected recycled plastic

In the western Mexican state of Jalisco, an enterprising company called Kuadro Ecological Solutions is building houses made of recycled waste plastic.

Around 3,000 tons of plastic from the region winds up in landfills. Kuadro drew on its experience in converting plastic waste into outdoor picnic tables, benches and plastic dog houses.to transition into building larger projects such as low-cost housing. It’s now in talks with the Mexican government about building low-cost communities with recycled plastic as its next venture.

How remarkable what creative minds can do with a drive to make a difference.
