Abstract

The Plastic, a harmful threat to the environment, so we have decided to reduce the usage of plastics by making supplementary changes or recycling methods. Though several recycling techniques had been made in treating the plastic waste, it couldn’t made to owe for 100% reuse or nullify the effect of it. So, we came through the term “Eco-Conscious Bricks” which is made using the plastic waste as a core part is done by referring the project of the plastic roads being utilized in Jamshedpur for about 48 to 50 km. The test sample was made using the moulds and we have observed positive result on compressive test. The strength obtained was 1.2 times that of the normal bricks. And the brick manufactured in this technique yields a good finish and perfect shape with economically cheaper rate than usual.
