Overview:

The "Ecobuilders Made in Senegal" aims to develop a new alternative construction method integrating a waste management solution, and this is to the benefit of Senegalese farmers through the construction of storage space to solve the problem of loss after harvest. The construction sector is one of the most polluting in the world (accounting for more than 42% of gas emissions). It is therefore time to find alternative construction techniques that do not only rely on blast furnace products! We need to give life back to non-biodegradable waste such as plastic bags, bottles, tires to solve real problems, and we are building ecological and economical storage spaces made from recycled materials to solve the issue of crop loss in agriculture.
