The Power Of Recycling

People often underestimate the power of recycling, but they wouldn’t if they realized how far used materials can go.

The RePlast bricks that are created are reinforced with wire, steel rods, and mortar, and they are especially useful for retaining walls in areas like California where there are frequent earthquakes.
