Kidus Asfaw, the visionary CEO and co-founder of Kubik, has spearheaded a groundbreaking initiative that addresses two pressing global challenges: plastic waste pollution and affordable housing.

With offices in Kenya and Ethiopia, Kubik is revolutionizing the construction industry by transforming recycled plastic waste into durable and eco-friendly interlocking building materials.

Asfaw’s passion for sustainable development and environmental conservation led him to establish Kubik. Recognizing the dire consequences of plastic pollution and the scarcity of affordable building materials in many regions, he set out to bridge the gap by leveraging the potential of recycled plastic waste.

Transforming Waste into Building Blocks

Kubik’s innovative approach involves collecting plastic waste from various sources, including packaging materials, bottles, and other single-use plastics.

Through a meticulous sorting and cleaning process, the plastic is shredded, melted, and molded into interlocking building components. These components possess exceptional strength, stability, and insulation properties, enabling the construction of durable and energy-efficient structures. 

Moreover, Kubik’s building materials offer excellent resistance to moisture, corrosion, and pests, making them ideal for diverse climates and environments.

By transforming waste into valuable resources, the company contributes to sustainable development, creates job opportunities, and promotes a circular economy that maximizes the lifespan of plastic materials.
