Plastic to Steam

It is reported that we can reduce usage of natural resources by 1/10, and that the environmental efficiency will increase ten times. We should think about this more as we are consuming nation of "stuff." With the hope of reducing production and stuff by merely 10 percent, a design company, One Tenth Design, has rethought the product life cycle for classic, simple plastic water bottle. Their project known as HOLLOW is a unique approach to everyday humidifiers.

The HOLLOW design uses ordinary plastic bottles in a specially designed base to create a small humidifier. Its production is resource-efficient, involving only three sets of parts for the base, which draws water from the upside-down plastic bottle and releases it as moisture-laden steam.
