BACKGROUND

EGG is extremely excited to announce our partnership with Building Goodness Foundation (BGF). We will be working together on their project located in Pozo Azul, Guatemala. The project involves the planning and construction of multiple school buildings to develop a secondary school campus. Currently, there is a primary school, but no middle school which can provide them with the opportunity to further their education or learn vocational skills. The buildings will be constructed partially of EcoBricks, which are essentially plastic bottles filled with use plastic to a set density. The EGG project team will be responsible for the creation of best practices for the use of EcoBricks in this design, as well as participating in the construction.
