In the United Kingdom, five million tons of plastic is used each year, yet only 370,000 tons are recycled each year. That’s only seven percent of plastic recycled.

Plastic is being researched as a sustainable building material. Currently there are several prototype initiatives. Why not? It’s strong, durable, waterproof, lightweight and reliable.
