Man in Fiji makes boat from 600 littered plastic bottles

Did you ever use an empty bottle to make a shaker or a toy as a kid? What about a boat? 600 littered plastic bottles were used by Tom Davies, a New Zealand native living in Fiji, to create this boat. In Tom’s tests, the boat can hold up to three big Fijian men. The plastic bottles were glued together to a layer of foam underneath. The boat measures 4.5 meters long and 1.4 meters wide. Now if only we could turn our landfills into raft making factories.
