Description

Conceptos Plásticos is the union of two passions—helping the environment and creating products that can benefit vulnerable populations. With almost 600 tons of plastic waste being thrown away in a landfill each day in Bogotá, Colombia, Oscar Mendez knew that something had to be done. That’s when the idea of Conceptos Plásticos was born. The company uses recycled plastic to build homes for impoverished communities throughout the city, while also teaching the importance of recycling and sustainability. As plastic’s characteristics make it a hard substance to degrade, the houses can last hundreds of years, changing the very fabric of the communities it helps.
