We the public have some great ideas to house reduce household waste :))

Simbrix believes we the public can do more to cut waste going into bad recycling systems and landfill. Product manufacturers are too slow with new ideas to reduce waste. Our creative minds could have more useful answers that we can all share and learn from. 

For example, Simbrix pixel art beads are packed in a plastic box for transportation,   them till you pick the brix for you creations then store them after use. The only waste is the card wrapper and plastic film on the inspiration card deck (that we did not want). The packaging is part of the but has lots of other uses too and we built them to last. This idea came from our fans!
