Bamboo / sporting good

Bamboo
Bamboo

'Bamboo' is a sporting good which is using recycled plastic bottles. You can use it as a pair of dumbbells when it is disjointed and you can use it as a barbell when it is jointed.
The shape of 'Bamboo' is, just like it's name says, came from natural bamboo which has very strong structure. When you fill up a plastic bottle with water, 1 liter is about 1kg and 1.5 liter is about 1.5kg. So you can use them as a dumbbell or a barbell. Also you can control the whole weight by controling the number of plastic bottles. 'Bamboo' is not only safer than any other sporting goods but also shows brand new way of using recycled plastic bottles.
