Poo bricks

Is it May already?! Why yes, it is. It's also #ecomonday on Twitter so I bring you this lovely and slightly crappy story(pun intended).

From Inhabitat.com comes a story about a group of students from Indonesia that created bricks from cow poop. Yep, you read right. They won the grand prize from the Global Social Venture Competition for creating building bricks, "EcoFaeBrick", from cow poop. The brick is 20% lighter than traditional clay bricks but is 20% stronger and safer for the environment!

I love what they're doing. Using a very plentiful source to provide lots of people with a cheaper option that doesn't destroy the environment. Yea, sounds good to me.

Update: No smell guys, no smell =)
