Plastic Sand Bricks as an Alternative Sustainable Building Material: Panacea to Affordable Housing for Low Income

Housing shortages are one of the key issues in developing countries, and low-income earners are disproportionately affected. This is because the bulk of low-cost housing put in place for this group of people is unaffordable due to factors such as a lack of political will, corruption and high cost of building materials among others. As a result, this study critically explores the use of plastic sand bricks as an alternative building material due to their sustainability and availability as a solution to cheap housing for low-income earners. The study used a qualitative method, analyzing some of the available literature, to propose solutions to housing shortages caused by population growth and rising building material costs, this will help the policy makers in built environment, by complementing their effort in achieving sustainable development goals Keywords Housing shortage, plastics sand brick, low-cost housing, low-income, affordable housing.
