How to turn mixed plastic waste and bottles into ecobricks

A step-by-step guide to making free building materials by stuffing plastic waste inside plastic bottles. A plastic bottle stuffed full of plastic waste is very solid and can be used instead of regular bricks in construction. This technique is very simple and is suitable for many types of waste plastic.
