Our staff this week join BrickClean Network (BCN) representatives to promote ‘clean and green bricks’ at the Real Estate Expo. BCN encourages developers, builders, architects and other visitors in choosing the right bricks to build ‘a clean and green Valley, brick by brick’. Over 2000 people visited the BCN stall.
BCN at the expo will display images of brick factory workers and provide information about where to buy the right kind of bricks. Concerned about the plight of the workers and environmental degradation, the network aims to promote socially responsible brick making. BCN has introduced a certification system in which brick factories are rated according to various indicators.
BCN was created by a group of social workers, environmentalists, child rights and animal rights advocates working in brick factories in the Kathmandu Valley.
