Ecobrick is a type of building block or brick that is made entirely of non-recyclable plastics.
This material is formed by filling a bottle with dry and clean plastic that is non-recyclable, and it can be used in all kinds of sustainable construction projects; That makes them a great way to dispose of plastic waste that would otherwise be incinerated, or end up in landfills and potentially the oceans. Note that these bottles do not have a structural role and are supposed to be used in covering and separating walls such as partitions.
Espe has a plan to collect ecobricks from all over Iran and use them to build the buildings needed in the deprived areas. If you are a resident of Iran and want to participate in this charity and sustainable project, just compress your non-recyclable plastic waste into PET containers and deliver it to us. For more information, visit Ecobrick’s highlight on Espe’s Instagram page (green.espe) and stay with us.
Materials that can be used to fill bottles
1. All kinds of freezer bags and non-degradable garbage (only if the recycling center of your place of residence does not receive it from you)
2. All types of foam and unolite
3. Packaging of chips, puffs, ice cream, cakes, biscuits, etc.
4. Cigarette filter without paper cover
5. All kinds of plastic gloves and disposable masks (completely clean and dry)
6. Pieces of colorful plastic for decorating parties and balloons
7. All kinds of non-recyclable and non-degradable plastic straws or disposable containers
8. Cellophane and plastic wraps
9. All kinds of adhesive tapes and plastic labels
10. All kinds of combined plastic squeeze tubes of toothpaste and… non-recyclable
11. Plastic packaging of factory pasta or beans (only if the recycling center where you live does not pick it up from you)
12. Tablet packaging sheet
Dry and clean the plastic drink bottle completely.
Make sure that the material of the bottle is PET. (Bottles of mineral water, dessert, soft drinks, clear bottles of milk, etc.)
Clean and chop the residues mentioned in the above list, then pour them into the bottle.
Using a long object such as a stick, push the waste down and compress them until the bottle is completely tight.
Close it and store it.
Be sure to make sure that they are dry and clean before putting these ingredients into the bottle.
Be sure to use the waste of the mentioned items. Using new or recyclable materials such as metals, glass or even recyclable plastics to produce ecobrick is considered a waste of national resources.
Do not use wet or degradable waste (such as paper towels, plant containers or paper) in any way. Because over time, their volume may decrease.
The ideal weight of ecobrics based on the volume of the bottle for delivery to Speh:
250 ml: 100 grams
500 ml: 180 grams
600 ml: 200 grams
1 liter: 370 grams
1/5 liter: 500 grams
2 liters: 650 grams
These bottles play the same role as bricks in covering and separating walls. So it is obvious that it is better to have the same sizes. 1.5 liter bottles are the first priority, but we accept other bottles as well.
The flammability of ecobrick wall is not as much as we imagine and this issue has several reasons:
Only PET materials such as mineral water bottles, soft drinks, buttermilk, Delaster or clear milk bottles. Except for the milk bottle, which is only transparent, the color of the rest of the bottles does not matter. They must be completely clean and dry before use.
Crushing plastics helps a lot to compress them better. The smaller the waste is cut into pieces, the easier it will be to achieve the standard weight of Ecobrick and the less energy required to compress them.
It should harden like a piece of brick. To the extent that it does not change shape when an adult human stands on it.
no Ecobrick strength is more important than ideal weight. If you are sure that there are no voids in it and it is completely hardened, then your ecobrick is ready and the small amount of weight loss can be ignored.
There is no limit. Any time and any number of ecobricks can be received. Join your provincial group for more detailed information.
In each province, representatives have volunteered to guide you, dear ones, and you can contact them to send eco-bricks. Otherwise, you can send your ecobricks directly to the address below. It should be noted that since this survey is currently public and is not covered by any organization or organization, the cost of sending eco-bricks is your responsibility.
Postal address for sending Ecobrick:
No. 19, 20 Pirouzi St., Sari.
Postal code: 4818896581

Please use gray water or a damp cloth to wash the residue. (Grey water: wastewater or waste water created by people at home. Such as the wastewater from washing dishes in the kitchen. You can spread your non-recyclable plastic waste on the floor of the sink when washing dishes so that they are also washed with the produced wastewater. )
A number of centers that receive the metallized in bulk end up separating it and throwing it away, because it has very little benefit from a material point of view and is considered a waste.
However, it is always said that the recycling of this type of waste in Iran is very limited.
If you know a center that recycles them, deliver them. Otherwise, they will definitely get lost in nature and it is better to put them in ecobrick
It is better for these infectious items to be clean, dry, crushed and finally exposed to sunlight before entering the eco-brick, then after separating the fabric and cotton parts such as mask straps, be sure to put them in a separate bottle.
Do not throw any recyclable waste into the eco-bricks, such as paper, metals, glasses, recycled plastics, etc.
The bottles you use for ecobrick must be clean and dry. But cleaning and drying some bottles is difficult and may waste a lot of water. For example, degreasing oil containers will waste a lot of water, and also because oil bottles are very diverse in terms of shape and size, the possibility of collecting a large number of same-sized and same-shaped eco-brics from oil containers will be negligible.
So preferably use 1.5 liter bottles of mineral water, soft drinks, dlster, clear milk containers.
Yes, just be sure to note that the cigarette must be completely used and its tobacco must not be poured into the eco-brick.
If you are a smoker yourself and collect them, try to remove the paper cover.
And be sure to get a separate bottle for cigarette filters.
