Concrete is the most consumed man-made material on earth and more than half of all the world's concrete consumption occurs in Asia. Besides immense CO2 emissions, concrete consumption produces waste when transporting it via bags. Instead of these bags ending up in landfills, we believe these bags should be repurposed into useful, fun, and fashionable items.
Why Concrete Bags?
Concrete bags are strong enough to hold about 150 full size mangoes (90lbs of concrete). The material is also waterproof and tear resistant.
Concrete bag waste is a global problem. Unfortunately, accurate data for Asia is not available. As a comparison, the U.S., the third largest consumer of concrete behind India and China, throws away about 39 million bags of concrete per year. Therefore, in Asia nearly triple that number of bags is wasted each year. Lastly, concrete bags are produced mainly from dwindling oil and natural gas resources. Letting this waste go to waste is unnecessary.
All funds raised will be used to gather bags from construction sites as well as to develop our current prototypes. Once we've raised the funds, we will be able to offer our designs to everyone.
