The World's First Eco-Stores

Eco-Stores are the world’s first stores where people can buy essential pantry items and household supplies in exchange for eco-bricks (empty plastic bottles filled with inorganic wastes) they produce themselves. Compartiendo Nuestras Bendiciones is currently running 3 Eco-Stores in and around the community of San Andrés Itzapa, Guatemala. Each Eco-Store produces between 400-800 eco-bricks a month and prevents around 100-200 pounds of inorganic material from being burned or polluting the environment.
