Inspired by local resident Sally Williams, kids at the Ocean Shores Primary School have created a wall made from plastic bottles filled with non-recycled soft plastic rubbish.
The school’s Wayne Gibbons says the low-cost eco bricks are a fantastic building material for homes, and have good sound proofing and insulation qualities, adding ‘it helps keep our local environment clean’.
‘All of the bricks were created by students and a student environmental group constructed the wall.
‘We have also been raising awareness with rubbish-free lunches, education programs and guest speakers,’ he said.
Students will be presenting their project at Southern Cross University later this month.
