The Coca-Cola MusicBottle is an Inexpensive Hobby for Underprivileged Children

— January 29, 2013 — Eco
Not every child has the luxury of having a hobby, whether it's a lack of money or a lack of time that stands in his way. Here we have an interesting proposal in the form of the Coca-Cola MusicBottle that makes learning to play a musical instrument quite accessible to kids all around the world.

Whether the youngster buys the original 500mL pop himself or not, empty bottles from just about anywhere could be washed and immediately repurposed for use by children. A brand new red cap has been designed by Generally and Especially to function like the top of a recorder, complete with an ergonomic mouthpiece that looks like a whistle. The bottom part of the lid can be used to punch holes out of the empty plastic body and the label instructs the user how to play a song.
Trend Themes
1. Recycled Instrument Trend - There is a growing trend of repurposing everyday items, like plastic bottles, into musical instruments, making music more accessible to children.
2. Accessible Music Education Trend - Creating affordable and easy-to-use instruments, like the Coca-Cola MusicBottle, is a trend that aims to provide underprivileged children with access to music education.
3. DIY Instrument Innovation Trend - Designing innovative do-it-yourself instruments, such as the whistle-like cap of the Coca-Cola MusicBottle, is an emerging trend that encourages creativity and exploration in music.
Industry Implications
1. Recycling Industry - The recycling industry can explore opportunities to collaborate with music education initiatives, creating new markets for repurposed materials like plastic bottles as musical instruments.
2. Education Industry - The education industry can leverage the trend of accessible music education to develop affordable music programs and instruments for underprivileged children worldwide.
3. Product Design Industry - The product design industry has the potential to disrupt the music instrument market by creating innovative and affordable do-it-yourself instruments that cater to children's needs and abilities.
