Millions of plastic bottles end up in disposal landfills. When plastics break down, they don't biodegrade, they photodegrade. This means the materials break down to smaller fragments. These readily absorb toxins which contaminate soil, waterways, and animals upon digestion. The solution is to embrace a cultural shift away from use-and-toss mentality. There is a means to reclaim these bottles and use them to make new bottles and other products at home. One way of re-using plastic bottles in our home is by incorporating it with our household furnitures.

The entry is a confortable and relaxing stove bench cushioned with plastic bottles. When you are tired or experiencing back pain due to work (such as long hours of computer use), laying down on the bench may help reduce the stress and pain.

The support/frame of the bench are made of lumber that can be cut out from a flyboard. Plastic bottles are attached into a series of semi-ring metals welded on a metal strips. These metal strips are screwed on the bench frame/support.
