Describe what makes your solution innovative.

we saw waste not as waste but as a resource that could be harnessed for the betterment of society.

For centuries roofing has been made from materials that were extracted from the earth cement,clay steel or grass. 

But we have improved and used waste plastic to generate a far superior product that is lighter stronger and affordable up to 30% cheaper.
