Meet Intissar Bashir a 29-year-old ABU graduate who 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.”
