Gallery: 6 Incredible Green Projects That Put Poop to Good Use!

 
Building off of poop’s molding capabilities, students at the Prasetiya Mulya Business School in Indonesia developed the EcoFaeBrick, a lightweight brick made from cow patties. The durable bricks are 20% stringer AND lighter than clay bricks, and since the material is natural and not quarried, their usage would cut down on the environmental destruction that quarrying creates. EcoFaeBricks create a solution for cow waste, while saving local environments, and providing local farms with a new revenue stream.
