Natural barrier / Barrier

Natural barrier

There are strict requirements for carrying liquids when flying in airplanes, which forces tens of millions of passengers to throw away very good bottled beverages and generates a lot of liquid waste and plastic bottle garbage, most of which is landfilled or incinerated, causing pollution to the environment.
Natural barrier is a barrier. When passengers line up at the security checkpoint, they can pour the undrinked water into the Natural barrier, which can irrigate plants and excess water. It can be stored and processed uniformly. Empty bottles can be thrown into the recycling bin or reused. This product is to reduce the waste of resources.
