Block Schools

Block Schools

We build schools on Lombok, Indonesia with blocks made from recycled plastic waste.

Why Build Block Schools?

Because it cleans up plastic pollution and provides children with a quality learning environment.

Indonesia is the world’s second-largest contributor to plastic pollution, generating roughly 24,500 tons of plastic waste per day. Each classroom we build removes 1-2 tons of plastic waste from the environment and provides a safe, earthquake-resistant learning environment where children can thrive.

About the Blocks:

  • Lighter, more resistant, and more flexible than conventional bricks
  • Made from 100% recycled plastic waste
  • Affordable, non-toxic, and more durable than conventional bricks
  • Types of plastic recycled include PE, PP, and PET
  • Easy to assemble (Think adult Legos!)
