GOOD GOVERNANCE NEWS – Bricks in Brazil Eco Friendly, Low Cost and Cool

In good governance news, Brazil chooses low-cost, Earth-friendly bricks. Professor Francisco Casanova of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro has been optimizing an ancient brick-making technology. The “ecological bricks,” which decrease overall building costs by up to 30%, contain 50% earth, 15% to 20% sand, 10% cement, as well as other materials. They can be produced without heating, reducing manufacturing emissions by up to 90%. The bricks are currently being used in the Program to Accelerate Growth, a low-income housing construction project. Kudos, Professor Casanova, for your innovative work. Also, our earnest thankfulness, Brazilian government, for your support. May Earth-loving endeavors such as these, combined with the planet-protecting organic vegan diet, be adopted in all corners of the globe.
