Please join us in our aim to promote the production and consumption of re-usable plastic bottles.

Our ambition is to incorporate empty plastic bottles into the modern and ecologically friendly concept of the Circular Economy.

As a recent news article published in the UK newspaper The Guardian states:

 

"A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number will jump another 20% by 2025, creating an environmental crisis some campaigners predict will be as serious as climate change."

(A million bottles a minute: world's plastic binge 'as dangerous as climate change' – The Guardian)

The BotBrik Solution

An empty BotBrik plastic bottle would not be a solid waste problem, when filled with sand, it may be re-used as a useful plastic interlocking building brick.

Some Questions and Answers regarding BotBrik

Here we are going to answer some questions that might arise when knowing BotBrik for the first time. We hope they help you better understand our BotBrik Circular Economy Concept.

Question: Could a 1.0lt. BotBrik used to package olive oil in Spain and then exported to China, fit together perfectly with an empty Chinese 1.0lt. mineral water BotBrik?

Answer: Yes. The BotBrik design would be controlled by the use of specially developed software. Bottling companies would use this software together with professional computer programs to produce their BotBrik bottle molds. This means that all the different capacities of BotBriks will be the same size and shape all over the world. This very “universality” is one of its main advantages.

Question: Can BotBriks be re-cycled?

Answer: Yes. In circumstances where BotBriks are not going to be re-used for construction purpose, they may be re-cycled. After all, they are just plastic bottles.

Question: Does a BotBrik bottle use more plastic than a conventional round bottle?

Answer: No. To produce a BotBrik of a similar capacity as a round bottle, the same amount of plastic is needed.

Question: Do we as a company, intend to mass produce BotBrik shaped plastic bottles?

Answer: No. We expect that because of their many advantages, bottling companies will use BotBriks.

Question: What two main steps does a bottling company have to do to change its production line to produce BotBriks?

Answer: The main step is to have a mold in the shape of a BotBrik. The special computer program will help with this. The second step would be to change the labelling process from a round label to a square one.

Question: Is the Botbrik design patented?

Answer: Yes, and we plan to register it in more than 30 countries worldwide. 

Question: Would bottling companies have to pay a royalty to use the Botbrik design? 

Answer: Yes, but the ammount will be very small, a global average of € 0.009 per Botbrik. Bottlers will add this cost to their production costs, and then to their distribuiters sales price, who will then add it on to the consumer price. Consumers will not object to paying 1 or 2 cents more for green,ecologically correct reusable packaging.

    Ecological     Aspects

Every day all over the world millions of single-use plastic bottles are utilized and discarded.

The global consumption statistics provide interesting and disturbing reading. The Circular Economy is one solution and our BotBrik bottle design is part of this ecological trend. When BotBriks are on sale it is important that the general public know about their advantages and how their use will help our earth´s environment. BotBriks are also ideal when natural disasters strike, such as, earthquakes, floods and typhoons, where safe drinking water and building materials are always needed.

        BotBrik         Company

Our goal is to exploit the patented BotBrik bottle design worldwide and our initial company strategies will be aimed to achieve this challenging objective.

The BotBrik design was patented in Spain in the search for a sustainable solution to prolong the life cycle of the plastic content of billions of plastic bottles discarded every day. We plan to register the patent in advanced countries where both the population and the governments are ecologically aware. We would also register in any developing countries which have large populations and the use of BotBrik bottles would improve living conditions. 

Brick Building Industry

To fully appreciate the ecological and social significance of our project it is important to learn something about the global building brick making industry. In developed countries, the brick making industry tries to be as efficient and ecologically friendly as possible, but they use huge amounts of energy and produce CO2 emissions and other health hazardous emissions. In the developing world, the primitive production methods cause major air and water pollution.  It is also a major user of child and even slave labour. We hope that the introduction of BotBriks in these regions will be widespread in order to lessen these negative effects.
