Ford makes the EcoSport crossover mats from plastic bottles

Plastic waste is a big problem in the world, and the American company Ford has decided to support the fight against plastic pollution “sacrificed” for these purposes, the EcoSport model.

Every new SUV EcoSport is equipped with carpets, which are made using 470 disposable plastic bottles. Since then, in 2012 Ford introduced EcoSport, the company managed to dispose of more than 650 million bottles of volume 500 ml.

The company estimates that the total weight of recycled bottles more than 8 million tons, and if you put them all in a row in one, they would have circled the entire planet in a double row.

Overall, Ford uses recycled bottles in their cars for more than two decades, and for the first time they began to be used in the model Mondeo, and just 20 years Ford processed on average at 1.2 billion bottles a year.
