Using state-of-the-art technology, Ocean Home uses the plastic waste retrieved from the ocean to create sustainable eco-homes for the locals.
BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE
ECO-BLOCK BY ECO-BLOCK
CREATING THE ECO-BLOCK
Using the hundreds of thousands of plastic gathered each year, we are able to provide homes for hundreds of local people. Solving two problems with one solution by turning plastic ocean pollution into affordable eco-housing,
STEP 1 - PICKING UP THE PLASTIC
Using specially modified trawlers, we sweep the ocean for plastic pollutants using a convey-belt system and eco-friendly, low-fuel trawling patterns.
STEP 3 - MAKING PLASTIC BLOCKS
Using state-of-the-art new technology the plastics are heated, compressed, and formed. Our system is able to recycle and sterilize all 7 types of plastic — no sorting or pre-washing required.
STEP 2 - BEGINNING THE RECYCLE PHASE
Once the load on the vessel is full, it is taken to a designated location where the plastic is loaded onto a truck and delivered to the blocking station. At this station, the plastic is prepared for its final form.
STEP 4 - CREATING THE ECO-HOMES
Our goal is to create both affordable Third-World housing and unique First-World housing, due to the strength and superior eco traits of sound and thermal insulation of the composite building materials. The Building blocks will be held together like Legos.
BECOME A PART OF THE SOLUTION
Commit to a weekly payment that will remove hundreds of miles of ocean plastic and trash and will use that recycles plastic to make an eco-block a week per donation.
If 15,000 people donate $3 per day we will clean up the current plastic floating around the "trash island" of the Belize.
Only 14000 people sacrificing less than 1 coffee a day and we can clean up the plastic island and build 5000 homes from the plastic - WILL YOU BE ONE

Our eco-blocks allow us to use any and every form of plastic that is found in the ocean every day. There is no need to clean or sort the trash, instead, it is all used in an effort to create beautiful and sustainable homes for hundreds of in-need people across the world.
LOCAL ECONOMY BOOST
Not only does this process bring jobs and labor to the local region from both the collection and processing but also from the building of the homes. In addition, clean oceans equal clean beaches and further insurance for both the local fishing and the tourism industries in these regions.
