From pasta noodle containers, cutesy coin purse, handy baskets, water sprinklers, artistic pencil holders, hanging flower pots, jewelry organiser, ottoman, to all sorts of decorations, we have tried to exhaust the essence of plasticity of a supposedly mere drinking plastic bottle. Plastic bottle that has been cut, sanded, tagged together–or the shear distortion of the helpless drinking bottle to regain its usefulness.
Ruthless we may seem, but admit it or not, these plastic hacks make life remarkably easier and ecologically better. All we need is the plastic bottle in hand and creativity in mind.
Plastic Bottles Sliced and Diced
Recycling plastics have been a good way to reduce rubbish plastics like plastic bottles, but not in a considerably good amount. With the massive number of plastic bottles produced and used each day, soon, we’ll be running out of creative juices to squeeze for us to make plastic bottles into something more useful than just mere decorations until every plastic bottle reaches its intended life. Hence, we can all agree that the water plastic bottle you’ve been drinking during your lunch is now resting peacefully in the trash bin. What else can we use it for?
Let’s Cut and Cut to the Chase
Want some more plastic hacks? Meet the wooden piece with a sharp blade fastened in it with a cutting guide that is so named Plastic Bottle Cutter.
Plastic Bottle Cutter had a kickstarter campaign, and legions of fans supported Pavel and Ian’s invented nifty tool to be brought into existence!
Pavel and Ian thought of an idea that paved the way to make plastic bottle problems into smart plastic solutions. And that is making plastic bottles into a rope.
How Long… Can the Rope Hold
Evidently, the length of the plastic string produced would depend on the size of bottle you use. But how long can it hold? A video clip shows how strong the plastic string is by using it to tow a car. See the video below:
The smart pocket-size tool easily cuts any plastic bottle into a one fine plastic rope that could already give you heaps of ideas where to use it.
You can also weave them–pretty much do anything you could think of.
Plastic Bottle Cutter in the Flesh
The Plastic Bottle Cutter is actually made with eco-friendly materials. Weighing only 115g and with 25 x 25 x 140mm dimensions, this tool makes it easier for all people to carry–especially people who have on-the-go persona.
Now you could make more hacks before you think of throwing your used plastic bottles into the bin.
