Bottled Boat / Boat

Bottled Boat
Bottled Boat

The Bottled Boat works on buoyancy of bottles. There is great deal of sea trashes float to islands in some countries, such as Maldives. Many of them are used bottles. In order to reuse the bottles, this boat for kid is designed differently from the traditional inflatable one. The bottles are fixed below the boat to provide buoyancy for it. It is also safer than the aired one, which could be broken by some sharp rocks. One aim of this design is to recall our attention of environment protecting and material reusing.
