Ivory Coast is using plastic waste to build schools

A community in Ivory Coast has partnered with UNICEF to transform landfill waste into bricks for schools.

The classrooms cost almost half the price of conventional building materials and can be built using just a hammer. Since 2018, plastic waste has been turned into 26 classrooms.
