Bottles that become very resistant strips

Due to the climatic conditions the planet is going through, it is urgent to take measures to reduce waste. In this case, reuse plastic bottles that often end up in landfills and oceans.

Faced with the inquency of doing something to protect the environment, a curious utensil arises; Plastic Bottle Cutter, a peculiar blade that turns plastic bottles into strips of several meters in length.

Although it is not about recycling because plastic continues to exist, it is about the so-called Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, it is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless and / or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

The bottles are turned into extremely hard plastic strips, which have multiple possibilities of use.

In this video you can see how to make your own bottle cutter and some very practical uses that can be given to plastic strips:

Here's how the original Plastic Bottle Cutter works and the scope of uses for the obtained plastic tapes:

Plastic Bottle Cutter is useful because it prevents the bottles from ending up in a greengrocer. And the plastic strips you get have many uses and can last for several years, so avoid buying string and other utensils that can be made from them, like the curtains seen in the video. You save money and contribute to caring for the environment, by not consuming new material.

Plastic Bottle Cutter can be graduated to achieve different strip thicknesses. Its use is very simple, but it is advisable to warm the bottle a little before starting the recycling, so that it is easier to cut.

These plastic strips are so resistant that they can even be used to pull a car without breaking. If heat is applied to them, they melt, so they can be used for example to join wood, or other materials. It is also possible to use them to make handicrafts and decorative objects.
