EcoBuild was born in June of 2011 while watching a house improvement show on TV, we noticed how the quality of finish in Malawian houses tends to fall short of international standards, and we learned that this was to a large degree due to the quality of our building materials.

Our mission is to be the first carbon neutral manufacturer of red brick in Malawi. Today Ecobuild has the only Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln in the country, which uses 10% of the energy of the traditional, artisanal brick manufacturing methods, and once at scale the plan is to switch from coal to charred agricultural waste to eliminate the last 10% of emissions.
