The Portico Gallery is starting a new project.

We’re making EcoBricks and would like everyone who comes to the gallery and its events and to the Portico Café to help.

Save your plastic bottles and fill them with soft plastic waste, clean food wrappers etc. Stuff them hard into the bottle and, once they are filled the EcoBricks can be used to build many things. In many countries EcoBricks are used to build shelters for animals, schools all sorts of buildings. They are as strong as house bricks and are, in many cases, a more effective insulator.

The Portico Gallery is researching what will be done with them and how it can be done. If anyone has any information regarding this, please let us know so we are able to pass it on.
