Meet – Hope Mwanake, Kenyan born Scientist, Environmentalist, Entrepreneur, Co-Founder and COO of Eco Blocks and Tiles, the first company in Kenya to manufacture roof tiles and other construction materials from plastic and glass waste.
Eco Blocks and Tiles mixes plastic waste with sand to make affordable, durable and eco-friendly roofing tiles in Kenya. In 2018, its first operational year, the company sold 50,000 roofing tiles and recycled approximately 50 tonnes of plastic waste.
“Our roof tiles are more durable, lighter, and easier to transport and install than concrete or clay tiles. They are also safer for rainwater collection and affordable,” said Mwanake.
