Plastic Fishing Group Transforms Bottles to Furniture

 After reading the title of this post, you may be wondering what is a plastic fishing group?  Well, the name sort of speaks for itself.  Amsterdam-based "Plastic Whale", for example, is one of these groups of people that literally fish for plastic.  Their goal is to collect plastic waste from the canals of Amsterdam to fight for plastic-free waters.  After they collect the plastic, they repurpose it to make boats to, you guessed it, fish for more plastic. They recently started using the plastic for a new purpose, however.  After years of planning and designing, they have created furniture from this plastic waste.  The furniture design draws inspiration from the whale and has a very modern appeal.  Check out the process below to learn more!
