Abstract :

Disposal of non-bio-degradable substances has become an issue of major concern now a day, mounds of garbage has been created over the earth surface. In order to deal with this problem a new concept of eco bricks also known as bottle bricks is trending. Eco bricks are a new class of building material which is made up of plastic bottles are filled with plastic wastes, sometimes with soil and can be further use for construction purpose. [1] These are energy and resource efficient bricks and can be used to make garden spaces partition walls and full scale buildings such as schools and houses. Use of these bricks reduces the construction cost as well as reduction of the land pollution. This paper intends to investigate plastic bottles as a construction material. It also mentions the manufacturing as well as other properties of eco bricks .At the end different factors such as cost efficiency and reduction of pollution due to use of these bricks is also concluded.
