R-Bottles / Bucket


For many people in poverty-stricken areas, the cost for buying buckets is at considerable expense. With R-Bottles, their expense in this aspect can be greatly reduced and their need for water storage can be satisfied. R-Bottles’ components are simple, using discarded plastic water bottles as the main part of R-Bottles, realizing the recycling of empty plastic water bottles. The other part of R-Bottles is made of recycled plastic and hence the production cost is relatively low and it achieves sustainability.
