About the project
The 3C Eco-house is a project that is changing the game of sustainable building materials and access to housing, while employing women and young people from underserved communities in the process.
Developed by 3C Construcciones, an Argentinian social enterprise, it allows to turn any plastic waste into eco-blocks (3C-Blocks) for building beautiful, sustainable, full functioning houses. 3C’s method doesn’t require any water or electricity, and it’s suitable for unskilled labourers.
3C Eco-house is a project that provides affordable, high-quality building solutions, generating a social, economic, and environmental impact. The process, machinery, and technology have all been tested and certified to comply with quality construction requirements.
This Toolkit includes the manuals and audiovisual materials to:
- Build the machinery needed to assemble the 3C housing block
- Produce the 3C blocks with recycled plastic waste (such as bag, plastic films and packaging)
- Build an eco-house with the 3C process and technology.
