plastic used to surface roads in the Netherlands

A company in the Netherlands is paving the way—literally—to a more sustainable world by replacing asphalt and concrete roads with pre-fabricated recycled plastic tiles. Created by KWS Infra, the “PlasticRoad” material would not only benefit the environment, it would reduce plastic waste headed for landfills.

That means the trash you intend to recycle could actually become the ground you speed over while running errands in your car.

In addition, the “PlasticRoad” would cut carbon emissions from the alternative oil-based asphalt.
