Plástico Fantástico is a social enterprise seeking to develop principles of circular economy in the construction industry of Mozambique 🇲🇿

Plástico Fantástico has set up a plastic recycling workshop in Maputo and is currently developing beams made of recycled plastic for low-cost construction of roof structures. Additional components will be developed in the future.
