Making Papercrete To Build With

Papercrete is pulped paper mixed with sand and concrete to make building blocks that can be used to make buildings with. Walls built with papercrete are most often a foot thick and work well as sound proofing. If you watch the video on the page you will see how the papercrete is made and the way Imogen Lees built stools out of her papercrete.

You can also make planters and other things from it. When building a building with it you can then add stucco and paint. This is a nice way to build an eco-friendly structure and a great repurpose for pretty much any paper. Survival Life shares a lot of detailed information and the video.
