The amount of plastic waste on the planet is reaching epidemic proportions, so this Plastic Bottle Cutter gives consumers the ability to use their waste rather than throw it out.

The capable cutter can be set to cut the bottles at certain gauges to suit a variety of different uses ranging from the creation of rope, to even weaving them for a basket.

Single-use plastic bottles are a valuable resource that is used and discarded at an increasingly rapid rate. As such, the effective reuse and recycling of these materials is imperative to keep them out of the oceans and our landscapes.

The Plastic Bottle Cutter works by being slid around a plastic bottle to quickly create some plastic thread. The device is currently funding on Kickstarter where consumer interest has already garnered nearly €200,000 at the time of publication.
