Let’s take a look some of the top innovative and sustainable startups focused on energy, zero waste, climate change and other inspirational initiatives.
BRICKIFY (Recycling Plastic into Sustainable Materials)
The startup Brickify recycles plastic waste into bricks that are resistant to water, fire, and heat. Therefore, the bricks can be used for both the construction of roads and low-cost housing. In addition, the bricks work like legos and interlock with one another thereby requiring no additional materials for the construction phase. Eventually, it is possible to make the construction process more affordable than the usual practices.
