Product designer Micaella Pedros had a great idea when contemplating how to create a new bonding material.

Pedros began the ‘Joining Bottles’ project, which works like it sounds. By taking shrunken plastic and applying heat, Pedros was able to create a wood bonding material capable of joining a myriad of functional structures.

The entire idea behind the experimental wood-joining technique is to encourage people to utilize what is available to us, and there’s no shortage of plastic bottles.

Ultimately if the idea is successful, there would be a major movement across many countries to collect as much plastic and wood waste as possible to repurpose the materials in positive ways.
