Brick Bottle / Plastic Bottle

Brick Bottle
Brick Bottle

My brick bottle design adds new value to the lifespan of the product without the need for recycling. The bottle leaves the factory with two lives. The first life being a stylish and suitable drinking bottle that uses the same manufacturing process to produce as other PET water bottles. The second life uses its unique shape to lock each bottle together to create a solid form for use in a multitude of construction projects, e.g. as a shelter for refugees in the developing world. If given the opportunity this bottle could increase the lifespan of a single bottle whilst potentially giving over 100 million people a chance at having shelter.
