Earthship Bench Project- Help us build an eco-bench!
This project uses recyclable waste and turns it into beneficial construction materials. Soda bottles are filled to the brim with paper and plastic recyclables and become solid “eco-bricks” which never break down, and old tires are recycled, filled with cement and dirt, and become a foundation for buildings, benches, and community centers alike. Plastic utensils and soda cans, once thought to have just a single use, are cut into different shapes and sizes and utilized as recycled design elements throughout each piece. This model of construction has been adopted in parks and communities throughout North & Central America, and at Teaneck Creek we are bringing the very first “Eco Bench” to New Jersey!
