'Clicko-Brick' is a green tech startup that offers a functional and economic solution to the problem of disposable plastic containers. Clicko-Bricks are interlocking, modular plastic containers for liquid, planned for short-term use (like bottled water), and long-term reuse as multi-purpose smart building blocks (for walls, floating fields DIY kits etc.). The product also tackles problems and needs in the building world.
Problem: Every year, about 560 billion liters of drinks, especially mineral water, are consumed globally. They are packed in hundreds of billions of disposable plastic bottles, which are then discarded, mainly in landfills. These bottles make up 15-20% of the waste volume, and remain non-degradable for thousands of years. Recycling is an unsatisfactory solution as it only covers about 20% of the bottles used worldwide, and even that is a costly, ecologically unviable process that requires much energy and generates pollution during transport and processing. Furthermore, it involves down cycling – the manufacture of inferior disposable products and lessening of the plastic's quality, which eventually leads to disposal.
Solution: Clicko-Bricks are liquid containers designed for reuse as interlocking smart building blocks. They come in three forms (square; hexagon; triangle) and various sizes. All sizes and forms have built-in integrating & interlocking capabilities in all directions (top & bottom included) with other units in a single structure. Their regular volume ranges between 250 ccl to 4.5 Liters, and as such, they can serve as containers to almost all household needs. The Clicko-Brick containers are produced in the common blow-molding technology, so that manufacturers wishing to produce them would not face exceptional challenges.
The beverage companies who will shift to Clicko-Brick will enjoy a head start against their competition: They will provide a reusable bottle rather than an environmental damage.
They will have:
3. Solving many issues of sustainability:
A variety of reuse options of the bottles (less littering);
No need of wrapping material for bottles sold in packs (less littering);
Saving space & energy on storage and delivery (less shipping efforts);
Saving fees & taxes for recycling & preparing for future regulations…;
