Bottle Rescue / Life Boat

Bottle Rescue

Bottle Rescue is designed for the lower income people who live in the area that floods always happen. They are not able to afford a boat for evacuation. But using Bottle Rescue, people are able to get away from the danger in their own lifeboat when facing floods. They collect plastic bottles and use the air in bottles as the support to make the boat float. In daily life, people can use it as a collector bag to collect wasted bottles and bring them to grocery stores to get the tax rebate. So they can help themselves to increase their income and clean up the environment. The whole product is able to be recycled with bottles.
