ECO Bricks, these are reusable building blocks created by packing clean, dry used plastic into a plastic bottle. Children that attend Bardykes are taught about these and actively encouraged to create Eco-Bricks with their families at home, once we have enough a new shelter will be built in the Secret Garden.
