A new way to introduce you to sustainablity. Meet Mwayanjaya Bolokonya From Malawi: an environmentally friendly, brick-making entrepreneur whose products only use one-tenth of the energy that normal bricks require.

Building a village takes one brick at a time, and EcoBuild is setting out to build a better brick for Malawi homes. Bolokonya says the way they do this is through kilns that “use one-tenth of the energy of traditional kilns.”

EcoBuild claims their products lower construction costs while providing quality construction and are eco-friendly with lower carbon and particle emissions than standard Malawi products.
