Build an Ecobrick: Competition Winners

With eight million pieces of plastic pollution entering our oceans every day, we invited you to make some ecobricks to help tackle the crisis. You all did a terrific job. Thank you for helping to lock away plastic so that it can’t harm wildlife. Total eco heroes!


Congratulations to our five winners:

Ivy, age 8, Bristol

“Me and my family have been making and collecting ecobricks for a couple of years now. We plan to make some flower beds for the garden with them. We are also donating them to my uncle who is using them to make an art installation for his music festival! We love reducing our plastic and my mummy also uses the plastic we do collect as cushion filling for her art projects.”


Artyom, age 7, Bristol

“I love making ecobricks. I started doing them last year when my school showed us how to make them. We have a plastic bottle in the kitchen and we put any nonrecycling plastic into it. Once the bottle is full, I put it into a special bin at school. When the school has enough ecobricks we will make something out of them. At the moment my school is closed, so I am collecting bottles at home. To save our planet, we gave up crisps, although they are delicious. I think people have to change the packaging to save our planet.”


Katie, age 10, Bristol

“My ecobrick is made out of an empty tonic water bottle and colourful plastic. It weighs 300 grams and altogether took two hours and a lot of work. I’m going to give this cool ecobrick to Bricking-it Bristol.”


Jessica, age 4, Cannock


Keira, age 9, Edwinstowe

“Me and my family don’t use any plastic bottles, so we asked people in our village if we could take their bottles instead. I’m going to make a planter when I get enough ecobricks. This is the first one I’ve made.”
