Hug It Forward is a grass-roots organization that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities in Latin America to build “bottle schools”.
Bottle schools are schools built using “eco-bricks”: plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash. Entire communities come together to make the dream of educational opportunity a reality, by building their own bottle school.
Our goal is to share the bottle school technology so that communities all over the world can build their own bottle school.
Bottle schools are schools built using plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash.Bottle schools are built using tried and tested post and beam construction. The foundations, columns and beams are made from concrete reinforced with iron. The difference with traditional construction is that instead of cinder-blocks, the walls are made using “eco-bricks”.
