Industrial engineer Federico Blanc had a dream to float down Argentina’s gorgeous Parana River on a recycled kayak, and his vision recently came to fruition! Blanc collected dozens of plastic soda bottles and glued them together to create his fantastic blue kayak. Simple, strong and eco-friendly, this boat can carry up to 2 people plus a cooler for when the rafters get hungry.
Here at Inhabitat, we’ve seen other water-vehicles made from recycled plastic bottles like San Francisco’s Plastiki and Fiji’s Bottles up!, but this cool kayak in South America is one that actually looks feasible for a normal person to make themselves. Built in the Villa Elisa region of the Entre Rios province, this eco-friendly kayak shows how fantastic recycling plastic can be. Check out this video of it in action here!
