PET Bottles To The Oil Spill Rescue

A Picture Perfect photo of Barack Obama swimming with his daughter in Florida is not the answer to oil spills! It takes more than that to contain the damage and get the affected areas back to their feet. A moment of thought goes out to the Oil Fence here, which is made from recycled PET Plastic bottles, fitted with special rubber caps on both ends. The logic is to reuse the trashed bottles for a greater good like containing spills without adding burden to the environment. The color scheme of orange and yellow, sure makes it look bright and cheery against the black slick of oil!

      it's a nice idea and also with morale ınsıde… but It's not the solution to clean the oil from the Mexican Gulf… This is a little bit Polyanna kind of looking at big disaster… There are patented solutions to clean the oil from the sea level by using recycled polymers but I dont know how they are not using them…

      How does this contain the oil spill? I'm not sure I understand the physics of your concept. The oil in the ocean isn't just sitting on top of the waves like oil & water in a glass, it's pretty well dispersed. Seems like this would only add more trash to our polluted waterways.

    • Although I'm not certain a plastic bottle oil fence would work, it's important to find new ways to reuse empty plastic containers to diminish the amount of plastic bottles in landfills. Visit the Eco-Connect Bottle System It's a patented system for connecting empty plastic bottles so they can be reused as creative, educational toys and as building insulation in developing nations and nations rebuilding from a natural disaster.

      If water bottles featuring this technology were donated to Haiti, the children could build simple toys and soccer goals from the empties. Then the empties could be utilized as building insulation to help rebuild the nation. Right now, the millions of water bottles that were donated to Haiti are just clogging up their landfills.
