- A man has come up with a creative and free way to make face shields
- He uses 2L Coca Cola bottles to make the see through visors
- His innovative idea can help South Africans protect themselves against the coronavirus without having to spend a lot of money
Lucky Casim Ndogo is the kind of citizen that we need in Mzansi. With many South Africans too poor to splash money on protective wear, the innovative man looked for ways to help his fellow Saffas keep themselves safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ndogo decided to use a two-litre Coca Cola bottle and convert it into a cheap and easily made face shield.
He created a video of himself showing off his homemade visor. Ndogo explained South Africans have brains but they don't have the money. So, he decided to get creative and use his mind to come up with the easy-to-make face shields.
Briefly.co.za asked Ndogo how he came up with the creative idea and he said:
"This idea developed the moment I saw cashiers wearing their see through face masks and I said to myself, 'but I can do this thing from plastic bottles and this would be a great idea for reducing plastic waste', and then I took a 2L plastic bottle and cut it according to the plan existing in my mind."
Take a look at the video below:
Meanwhile, another innovative man has inspired Saffas. The man used an old metal drum and converted it into a smart, clean, portable wash basin.
Mzansi applauded his talent and called for his invention to be implemented formally at taxi ranks.
