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".

Some potential uses for the mono-polymer include skateboards, surfboards and solar panels.
