Cozy Dining Cabins From Plastic Bottles

Well, that’s a new way to reuse plastic bottles! Outdoor dining spaces are more prevalent around the world because of the pandemic. Outside Peaches Kitchen & Bar in Brooklyn, New York, one can spot some unique outdoor dining cabins which are made out of interlocking plastic bottles. The bottles, called Friendship Bottles are used for these spaces

Called Friendship Bottles, the building blocks of these dining cabins are a specially designed type of container that is intended to bring a practical second life to plastic bottles. Notched and flanged with connectable forms, the bottles are LEGO-like plastic bricks that can be reused as building materials after their initial use as liquid containers.
Currently in the prototype stage, Friendship Bottles are a new approach to the plastic bottle. Produced by a factory in Toronto, the bottles are made like typical plastic products, but with a physical shape and strength that allows them to be upcycled into buildings and other structures.
It’s an idea that’s been bubbling in the beverage industry for decades. In the 1960s, the beermaker Heineken developed an interlocking and stackable glass beer bottle that was intended to be reused as a building material post-consumption, but the concept never made it to market.
