The Platiki is a brainchild of environmentalist David de Rothschild, who says the goal was to "demonstrate that a mass-consumption item such as a plastic bottle, can be transformed into an effective and useful resource". It is hoped that the mono-polymer, which is 100 per cent PET plastic, will be usable in other fields and because it is 100 per cent PET plastic, it can be melted and reused again and again. Some potential uses for the mono-polymer include skateboards, surfboards and solar panels.
