Last fall, the Fundão Dam collapsed in Mariana, Minas Gerais state in Brazil, injuring and killing dozens of people. According to Grey Brazil, "a sea of mud covered dozens of cities, decimated lives, and destroyed the environment." To help the area rebuild, the agency created a project called 'Bricks from Mariana.' Grey Brazil said that the project aims to "accelerate the revival of the affected region, by helping clear the area, by restoring jobs, by rebuilding houses, hospitals, schools, and community centers, and by generating revenue for local communities." In partnership with a group of engineers, the agency is transforming mud from the disaster into clean and non-toxic raw material for the production of ecological bricks. The bricks will help rebuild homes, schools, and recreation centers in the affected region, and the 'Bricks for Mariana' factory will have a 100% local workforce, which will help provide jobs in the community.
