The PURRPLE Project in Bir, India aims to reduce the use of plastics and re-purpose plastic that is brought around the landing zone . The project will produce plastic bricks from LZ Waste, and will install filtered water refilling stations with the goal of eliminating plastic water bottle waste.

The Plastic Use Reduction & Re-Purpose Project (PURRPLE) was initiated to minimize use of plastic packaged products, segregate waste and re-purpose this waste to create plastic bricks. In 2017 a bench and a wall made out of plastic waste were constructed by the local community in and around the Landing Zone. To significantly reduce the use of plastics in this small North Indian town, the team plans to install Water Filling Stations around the Landing Zone, create and sell re-usable metal water bottles and continue to make Plastic Bricks.


Funds will be used to purchase and maintain filtered water refill stations, create a waste disposal system that segregates harmful plastic waste and employ locals to produce plastic bricks made from disposed water bottles and plastic bags.


Plastic waste is a large problem in Bir. Our project aims to educate local people and visitors about the environmental impact of plastic, and to reduce contamination of water streams and air pollution that can have an alarming impact on the health of the community and our natural environment
