Farmer Makes Floating Rafts Out of Discarded Plastic Bottles

This farmer in Vietnam was tired of seeing plastic bottles discarded in his fields — so he decided to use them to create floating rafts that help other farmers save money on transport in an eco-friendly fashion.

Le Van Hieu reportedly encourages his neighbors and others to help gather as many bottles as they can. He then takes the bottles, secures them within netting, and ties planks to the top, allowing them to be used as rafts. Each raft is made from 1,000 plastic bottles.
