  1. มันก็ดีนำกลับมารีไซเคิลช่วยลดสิ่งแวดล้อมลดมลพิษวัตถุดิบแล้วก็นำขึ้นมาจากใต้ดินเพิ่มมาประดิษฐ์เป็นพลาสติกน้ำมันนั้นเอง

  2. No country has noticed that the communist Chinese government, which does not care about human survival, has deceived the world with its, Wuhan covid-19.

  3. I would understand if the plastic was re-used so that new plastic doesn't need to be produced, but I don't see how re-using plastic to make bricks that would not be made from plastic solves anything.

  4. You are an incredible woman and role model! Please come to Canada and speak to our Prim Minister or whoever to get something like this going chère. Currently we are paying countries like the Phillippines to take in much of our garbage. And some provinces don’t even recycle. It’s disgusting how much plastic is thrown out here!

  5. dude the us sends the plastic waste to kenya and this woman finds a way to make bricks of it, all nations should follow her steps, there is a huge potential on this, even for paving roads and high ways
