I read in The Tightwad Gazette that those plastic connector rings from 6-packs can be used to make a hammock, tied together with fishing line. Has anyone ever tried this?
I did find this:http://www.thegreenestdollar.com/2009/07/5-cool-ways-to-reuse-your-six-pack/
and the semi-attack from the hammock:http://cposs.org/hammock.html
I can't quite understand how the folded rings go together, though. It seems like this may hold more weight than one that's made by just tying the connector rings together with nylon.
A worker at a local health food store overheard me talking about this once, and so she asked the other employees to start saving the rings from the beverage cooler and their own drinks so that I could try this. She just gave me a bag full of them and there's more where they came from. I want to keep these deadly things out of landfills and waterways
, and put them to good use. Any other suggestions, either for making better hammocks, or for other projects using the rings, would make me grateful!
