Product Description
Also available in recyclable Brass, click here for more details.


Did you know it often costs more to recycle a bottle than to make a new one? Every year 50 million bottles are thrown away in the U.S. alone. With an estimated longevity of anywhere from 450 to 1000 years our plastic bottles aren't just a problem today, they will be a problem FIFTY generations from ours.

Beside lobbying for a complete halt to plastics and plastics bottles our next best option after recycling is to reuse our bottles! Did you know you can build a house from plastic bottles? Heinekin (yes, that Heinekin) even experimented with beer bottle bricks in 1960s.

Plastics bottles have many re-uses, one very popular use is plastic thread and rope. PET string is easy to make, but making it neatly requires a little extra help - that's where this super affordable and long-lasting Bottle String Cutter comes from!

Don't wait for some shady kickstarter - order today and get it in 2 weeks (that's manufacturing and shipping time). You don't need to fuss with special parts, this is as easy as 1, 2, 3
  1. Screw the Bottle String Cutter to a flat surface
  2. Slide a readily available and common x-acto blade into the mount
  3. Start cutting your string!
