The design concept behind Plastic Water is to produce a replacement for pool water, so that swimming training can be provided in water-scarce areas. This concept also promotes the recycling of PET bottles to reduce the amount of plastic polluting the oceans. The plastic water ball density is comparable to water, and the buoyancy of a person in a plastic water pool is similar to a normal pool. Using plastic water to replace the water in a pool greatly reduces the use of water resources. Plastic water can also be used as a substitute for many water-based rehabilitation and massage treatments.

It's a great honor to be nominated again. Thanks to those who offered to help with this project. I wish my ideas can help people in need and make the world a better place.
