EcoFaeBrick found a way to use waste matter to build homes in Indonesian regions where cow dung is abundant (and constantly being produced!). Using cow dung for bricks avoids the environmental damage caused by the traditional means of digging up clay. EcoFaeBrick supposed to be 20% lighter and 20% stronger than clay brick. It makes us hope that someone will find a way to repurpose dog poop for city use. More EcoFaeBrick info and photos below the jump...
EcoFaeBrick costs the same amount as clay brick. Paying farmers for cow poop is expected to increase their income and stimulate the local economy.
The idea is environmentally-friendly and intelligent. But it makes us wonder whether something like this could be used here.
Would you live in a house made of poop?
