RE:FLO / Up-cycling


Severely, about 77,000 tons of marine waste occur each year. Most of them are plastic bottles. These plastic bottles have been floating on the surface of the water for decades without breaking down, leading to marine pollution. Inspired by the fact that it floats on the surface of the ocean, it recycles its features and adds new value. A plastic plastic plastic bottle is connected to a breakwater-shaped module to act as a buoy on the surface of the sea. The name RE:FLO means that plastic bottles get new value from marine waste through recycling, and it means "RE" + "FLOW."
