Hi Mat, yes the two would definitely work well together as I can really see potential for the cross pollination of your idea with the ShoutBox booth. The booth could act as a community hub from which your idea could be implemented. Thanks for your feedback :)

Simon commented on Recycle & Refresh

Hi Napas,
Love this concept and how you are recycling bottles in a way that they still serve their original purpose but are also functioning as a part of a filtering system. You mentioned the side bottles can't handle the weight of the water well. I believe this problem would be pretty easily solved with a simple. low cost bracketing system. This could be as simple as a few well placed nails in a wall to support the weight or a fabricated wire mount that supports the whole system. Definitely not a major problem to solve and one that wouldn't add too much additional cost or resources. There is a good chance that this could also be made from recycled material which would be in line with the re-purposing ethic of your idea.
