WASTE MANAGEMENT

Protection & Infrastructure



HOUSES MADE OF RECYCLED PLASTIC WASTE

Reuse plastic waste sustainably to improve living conditions and create jobs in developing countries. 

Contamination from plastic waste is omnipresent. BOXS Light uses recycled plastic panels for its building envelope. Thus, the system not only provides adequate and safe shelter for people in need, but also contributes to the improvement of the environment by combating plastic pollution and promoting recycling.   

The recycled plastic panels can also be used for various other infrastructure needs. Some examples: Floors in tents, furniture, raised beds for gardening, fences and much more. They are very easy to work with, weatherproof, water-resistant, easy to clean and more durable than wood solutions. And of course they can be recycled after use. 

The production and construction of BOXS Light solutions creates new jobs in the local economy and ultimately contributes to a higher standard of living for the population.
