Zipblocks are a green technology. Basic Zipblocks can easily be manufactured from recycled materials or from sustainable resources like wood.

Glued-laminated (glulam) timbers have been used for over a 40 years by the construction industry to build everything from bridges to homes. Wooden Zipblocks take this concept/technology to the "next level." They allow for the instant construction of "Glulam-like" structures of virtually any size or shape. Wooden Zipblocks that have been glued together are ideal for building infrastructure like bridges, columns, and roads. Simply weave structures together with Zipblocks and glue and your structures inherit all the wonderful qualities that wood has to offer.

Virtually anything that you can build with toy-construction bricks can be built with Zipblocks...but on much larger scales. Zipblocks are like giant toy-construction bricks that simply interlock on placement.

Zipblocks are also a great DIY (do it yourself) product. The go kart illustrated in this picture was built using Zipblocks. Zipblocks can be used to build all kinds of things almost instantly.
