The man you see in the photo is Tom Davies, a NZ native living in Fiji that created a boat with a big amount of plastic bottles (around 600l).
Plastic bottles are the perfect material that can be used because of lower weight, high resistance and good durability. On the other hand, is a good way to recycle and re-use and it will not rot as woods, so not additional products for treatment are needed.
The “Plastic Bottles Boat” has 4.5 m long x 1.4m wide and looks like this:
Some people that used to use bamboo to build boats are now using disposable water bottles – and yes, there are motors that can be adapted in that boas!
The boat has 3 layers of bottles and has 2 sits has you can see in the photos.
Now will you start to collect disposable plastic bottles? 🙂
