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 2-3 tons of plastic waste from the environment and provides a safe, earthquake-resistant learning environment where children can thrive.
