Most would agree that cars can be a real nuisance for the environment.
Whenever someone who cares even a little about the environment goes out to buy a car, most of the time they are likely to return either empty-handed or dissatisfied with their choice (unless they buy electric).
The solution is way closer than it seems.
Dutch students have created a fully functioning electric car made entirely out of waste, including plastics fished out of the sea, recycled PET bottles, and household rubbish.
The bright yellow, sporty two-seater (image in comments) which the students named ‘Luca’, can reach a top speed of 90 kilometres (56 miles) per hour and has a reach of 220 kilometres when fully charged.
The chassis is made out of flax and recycled PET bottles. For the interior, they used household waste.
Hard plastics normally found in televisions, toys, and kitchen appliances were used for the car’s body, while the seat cushions consist of coconut and horse hairs.
The car was designed and built by a group of 22 students in around 18 months as an effort to prove the potential of waste.
Mindblowing, isn’t it?
