29-year-old Nigerian lady uses ‘pure water’ sachets to make strong interlocking tiles

A Nigerian lady identified as Intissar Bashir Kurfi has stirred reactions on social media for using sachet water commonly known as pure water nylons to make interlocking tiles.

The 29-year-old who is the founder of Ifrique Design, said she engages students in picking the waste and rewards them with solar light for night reading.

In an interview with BBC Pidgin, Intissar said said she collects plastic wastes and processes them into bricks that could last longer than conventional ones

In her words: “If your conventional interlocking tile is going to spend 10 years, this one is going to spend 30 years.”

For one of her projects, the young entrepreneur created 1,250 pieces of interlocking bricks from 625,000 pure water sachets.

Intissar, a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, decided to use waste to make interlocking tiles because of the danger of plastic waste in society.

She said: “My wish is to rid Nigeria out of plastic and especially Abuja and also to see that our product is being used for making roads that don’t have potholes and building houses, building schools, building public toilets out of these plastic wastes that we have.”

    This is wonderful development

  2. We have brilliant people who can transform this beautiful nation technologically but our problem is lack of focus of our leaders and and cychophants operators of the system.Instead of assisting good innovators they turn blind eyes and siphon our collective wealth outside the country or bury people’s money inside their improvised mortuary for themselves and their families alone.God will help Nigeria.My prayer for the innovators is God’s preservation of their lives to witness leaders with conscience and lover of the poor masses.
