Repurposing old library collections into houses where people can live may be part of an eco-friendly future, at least according to this post on the Observers website.
It’s all thanks to Elijah Djan, a 21 year old South African inventor who “is launching a product that sounds improbable: a brick, made out of… paper” that he calls Nubrix. But he’s no Johnny–come–lately. He’s been at it for a while. Mr. Djan made his first prototype when he was only 11 and bagged a national prize for the effort.
Obviously, his story is one of innovation, commitment, and entrepreneurship – and well worth checking out.
