Shell puts up first retail station out of upcycled plastic waste

Pilipinas Shell has opened their world’s first retail station made from eco-bricks created from upcycled plastic waste.

In partnership with Green Antz Builders, Pilipinas Shell has put up such feat as they built a Shell retail station in Plaridel, Bulacan—the first for the whole Shell global group. In putting up the said station, some 26,512 eco-bricks (upcyling to 1,200 kilograms of plastic waste) were utilized for the project.

These products were sourced from Green Antz’s Plaridel eco-brick hub, from various waste management sources, including those from Malolos, Plaridel, Pulilan, Baliuag, and San Ildefonso local governments with the help of Plaridel’s chief eco-brick proponent Jocell Vistan.
